Miami Health Care Fraud Attorney
South Florida is known as the capital for health care fraud. Current U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Florida said in 2011, “it is embarrassing”. The U.S. Attorneys Office, State Attorney’s Office and Judges are taking a tough stand against individuals charged with health care fraud and lengthy jail sentences are more commonly seen.
The most frequent kind of fraud arises from a false statement or misrepresentation made, or caused to be made, that is material to entitlement or payment under the Medicare program. The violator may a physician or other practitioner, a hospital or other institutional provider, a clinical laboratory or other supplier, an employee of any provider, a billing service, beneficiary, Medicare carrier employee or any person in a position to file a claim for Medicare benefits. Other types of fraud prosecuted under this umbrella are for the offering or acceptance of kickbacks, and the routine waiver of co-payments.
Fraud schemes range from those perpetrated by individuals acting alone to broad-based activities by institutions or groups of individuals, sometimes employing sophisticated telemarketing and other promotional techniques to lure consumers into serving as the unwitting tools in the schemes. Seldom do perpetrators target only one insurer or either the public or private sector exclusively. Rather, most are found to be defrauding several private and public sector victims, such as Medicare, simultaneously.
