Detroit Lawyers for Medicare Fraud and Medicare Fraud Defense

The majority of Medicare fraud and Medicaid fraud cases involve some form of overbilling, overutilization (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 become commonplace. Unfortunately, these unintended errors can be viewed as intentional by law enforcement and result in 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.
