Durable Medical Equipment Fraud One of Florida's Most Reputable Defense Law Firms

Orlando Durable Medical Equipment Fraud Defense

Assistance in Health Care Fraud Charges

In recent years, the federal Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services has undertaken an aggressive campaign to end healthcare fraud committed by durable medical equipment (DME) companies. In the state of Florida healthcare fraud is a high priority for government prosecutors. A Medicare Fraud Strike Force was formed in 2007 to investigate and prosecute DME suppliers and clinics suspected of fraud for Medicare overpayments.

The Orlando criminal defense attorneys at the Law Offices of Horwitz & Citro, P.A., defend business owners, employees, and others charged with Medicare fraud, Medicaid fraud, or private insurance fraud in south Florida, central Florida, and select jurisdictions around the U.S.

Mark Horwitz and Vince Citro are certified criminal trial specialists with more than 45 years of combined courtroom experience. To speak to a member of our team, contact us online or call our Orlando office at (407) 901-5852.

Defense on all DME Fraud Charges

We defend clients facing charges for:

  • Conspiracy to defraud the U.S. government
  • Theft, healthcare fraudulent claims, identity theft,
  • Perjury
  • Kickbacks (offering people money or promotional gifts if they will take a "free" medical exam then prescribing a DME that they do not need)
  • Soliciting or accepting kickbacks from co-conspirator companies (home healthcare provider, pharmacy) for referring patients to them

Durable medical equipment companies face fraud charges relating to products such as wheelchairs and motorized scooters, walkers, hospital beds, oxygen, dialysis equipment, diabetic equipment, diabetic shoes, body braces and canes, body jackets, and incontinence supplies.

These products are involved in several types of DME fraud:

  • Providing products that were not medically necessary (such as HIV infusion therapy)
  • Providing durable medical equipment that was not ordered by a doctor
  • Not providing the durable medical product that was billed
  • Managing a dummy DME company making fraudulent claims to Medicare or Medicaid or private insurance companies using stolen social security numbers and physician provider numbers
