Tenacious Prosecutions for Healthcare Fraud Cases
The federal government relentlessly pursues cases of healthcare fraud, wherever they may originate. Medicare fraud and healthcare fraud cases have been front-page news and on-the-rise over the last couple of years. This is particularly true under the current administration since the Affordable Healthcare Act became law regulating healthcare.
The crackdown on Medicare billing practices and all types of healthcare fraud has meant that more innocent people are being caught in the crossfire and being accused of crimes that they did not commit. Furthermore, in their zeal to look tough on crime, law enforcement investigators may trample your rights if you are accused of defrauding the government or a health insurance company. Specialized federal investigators with new technology on their side, may peer into every facet of your life to make a case against you.
People who have been targeted by healthcare fraud accusations include:
- Medical professionals
- Healthcare corporation executives
- Healthcare employees and staff
Essentially everyone in the healthcare industry is in the line of fire, including individuals just like you. Legal protection is a must, and we can provide it. Call our team at (205) 335-2640 as soon as you can.
