Medicare Fraud Defense Lawyer in Orlando

The Risks to Health Care Professionals

Health care billing in general is very complex and Medicare billing can be even more so. Detailed and ever-changing billing codes are just some of the realities facing healthcare professionals and their third-party billing services. Our Orlando healthcare fraud defense lawyers have extensive experience in helping employees and hospitals or other facilities in the face of Medicare fraud allegations.

Who Is at Risk?

The list of who can be accused of fraudulent Medicare billing is quite extensive. You can be subject to investigation if you are a physician, surgeon, radiologist, nurse, pharmacist, dentist or chiropractor. We also represent hospitals, clinics, medical equipment providers, and home healthcare services that have been placed under suspicion.

The emergence of television ads targeting seniors to encourage them to pursue investigations and legal action against healthcare professionals like you is concerning to the industry as a whole. Our practice is committed to helping providers and facilities defend themselves against such allegations.

Types of Medicare Fraud Charges

Many things can lead to the assertion of Medicare fraud, including the following:

  • Inaccurate coding
  • Kickback acceptance or solicitation
  • Billing for services not actually provided
  • Billing for unneeded services
  • Inappropriate document maintenance or management

the Law Offices of Horwitz & Citro, P.A., has extensive experience defending professionals in the face of inappropriate or inaccurate charges of fraud. Our Orlando criminal defense lawyers are aggressive in our efforts to guard your reputation and career.

Potential Consequences of Medicare Fraud

Fraud charges, or even an initial audit of Medicare billing records, can come with serious penalties if you are ultimately convicted. Your professional license may be revoked and you could be ordered to pay fines or restitution, which could result in the placement of liens on your private property or even garnishment of your wages.

If you are a non-U.S. citizen, you can be subject to the threat of deportation, based upon your criminal record status and time in prison may also be ordered. We can help you at any phase of a situation, from an audit to a defense in court.
