Health Care Fraud

Health Care Fraud cases are pursued by both federal and state officials.  However, the federal government is much more likely to investigate, arrest, and charge a large number of doctors, pharmacies, third-party billers, and others involved in their perceived scheme.  Health care fraud is, most simply, defined as misleading a health care provider into believing that a patient needs medical services or prescriptions that are not actually medically necessary.  Said another way, if you or someone being investigated for health care fraud ever billed an insurance provider for goods or services that were not necessary or, even worse, not provided, you can be held liable under both the federal and state statutes.  

Federal officials often charge health care fraud cases under a conspiracy – two or more people conspiring either to commit any offense against the United States, or to defraud the United States, or any agency thereof in any manner or for any purpose – because health care fraud normally requires more than one individual to create the fraud.  For example, if a doctor’s office is fraudulently billing a health care provider for services rendered that were not actually rendered, it is very common to find that multiple individuals were aware of the conduct – doctors, office managers, receptionists, and third-party billing companies.  Very seldom are health care fraud schemes perpetrated solely by one individual.
