Health Care Fraud Tough Federal Criminal Defense Since 1970

Los Angeles Federal Healthcare Fraud Defense Attorney

What Are the Implications of Healthcare Fraud Accusations?

Anyone who provides, receives or otherwise insures or pays for health care could potentially face a health care fraud accusation. Health care fraud is intentionally deceiving or misrepresenting any part of a health care transaction to receive financial gain or use unauthorized benefits.

Often people accused of health care fraud do not know they did something wrong until an investigation has already started. Acts such as unorthodox billing processes can trigger an investigation. Whether you intended to commit healthcare fraud or not, the bottom line is you need a criminal law expert to help you navigate your charges.
