Detroit Lawyers Defending Professionals Facing Investigations
The majority of Medicare and Medicaid fraud cases involve some form of overbilling, overuse (of drugs or services) and kickbacks. These cases are very statute-specific and fact-intensive. It is important to hire a health care fraud defense lawyer who understands what is involved and what is necessary to achieve results.
With the complexity of Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) codes or the Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System (HCPCS) used for billing health care services, innocent mistakes in billing can happen easily.
Unfortunately, law enforcement officials sometimes see these unintended errors as intentional and file charges of health care fraud. Our attorneys understand the complexity of government charging methods and know how to defend professionals facing investigation for false billing or other forms of health care fraud.
