Health Care Fraud
Healthcare is a topic that has been on everyone’s minds lately. As new legislation affects healthcare access and services, the information that is collected and how it is protected will continue to be a hot topic as well. If you have been accused of healthcare fraud, it is important to act quickly to protect your reputation, your livelihood and to figure out the best approach to a solid defense.
At Perry Shore Weisenberger & Zemlock, we keep these goals in mind when helping clients who have been accused of healthcare fraud. Patients, doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals, including medical administrative staff, routinely call upon us to defend them when they are charged with healthcare fraud. We know how to follow the trail of paperwork that can establish the grounds for these charges and your defenses. If you have been charged with healthcare fraud, contact us today to see how we can help you.
The attorneys in our firm handle all types of healthcare fraud, including allegations of:
- Disclosing or selling HIPPA protected information
- Overbilling or duplicate billing
- Medicare and Medicaid fraud
- Inflating costs or seeking additional reimbursement for services not provided
- Reselling prescription drugs or durable medical equipment
- Paying kickbacks to other medical providers in exchange for business, preferential treatment
- Falsifying documents
No matter how the charges originate, it is imperative that you have a well constructed defense because this evidence may also be used as grounds for revoking your professional license. The licensing boards in Pennsylvania are strict when it comes to evaluating character and your record when granting, renewing and revoking a license.
