MEDICARE FRAUD and HEALTHCARE FRAUD
Healthcare Fraud which also includes Medicare Fraud, Medicaid Fraud and Insurance Fraud is a specialized area of law prosecuted by both Federal and State authorities who share joint or concurrent jurisdiction over these crimes.
If you come under investigation for Medicare Fraud, DME Fraud or Healthcare Fraud, call Criminal Defense Attorney Sam Rabin. He has more than 30 years of experience representing individuals in this area of law.
South Florida, and Miami, in particular, is the center of U. S. Medicare Fraud and other forms of Healthcare Fraud committed by both Healthcare providers and patients. Statistics show that a highly disproportionate amount of all U. S. Medicare Fraud and Healthcare Fraud emanates out of South Florida, far beyond what the population of South Florida represents to the total U. S. population. As a result, the federal government has set up a task force with special agents and prosecutors in South Florida to pursue perpetrators of Medicare Fraud and Healthcare Fraud.
Right now, government auditors are reviewing all Medicare and Medicaid provider submissions over the last five (5) years looking for any evidence of fraud. These billing submissions may come from:
- Doctors and clinics
- Durable Medical Goods providers
- Health Service Providers
- Private Insurance Companies
