Medicare and Medicaid Fraud Attorney
The penalties for Medicare and Medicaid fraud are severe. A conviction can result in heavy fines, exclusion from government healthcare programs, loss of professional licenses, and up to five years in prison on each count.
You need help from an experienced Medicare and Medicaid fraud attorney. In some cases, criminal charges can be avoided before they are ever filed, or legitimate defenses can be raised. In other cases, it makes sense to negotiate a settlement or plea agreement. How you respond to the investigation and charges usually makes all the difference.
Do not delay. If you or someone you know is under investigation or charged with Medicaid fraud, contact an experienced Medicaid fraud lawyer immediately. To arrange a free and confidential consultation, call John Howley, Esq. at (212) 601-2728 or click here to arrange an appointment online.
Medicaid Fraud Investigations
The first sign that you are in trouble with Medicaid is often a letter or phone call asking you to meet with an investigator for an "interview" or to submit your files for review. If this happens, the government has already gathered evidence and started to build a case against you.
The letter will ask you to bring documents to an "interview" with fraud investigators at 250 Church Street or 151 West Broadway in Manhattan.
Do not walk into a trap. An innocent mistake or a forgotten fact may be used by the government to accuse you of lying to investigators and obstructing their investigation. Get yourself an experienced Medicaid fraud attorney who can help you prepare for the interview and who will defend you at all stages of the case.
Medicaid Fraud Arrests and Raids
In some cases, government agents may raid your home or office and seize your files and computers. Or a detective may call and instruct you to surrender at a District Attorney's office to face charges. Do not panic. Do not try to talk your way out of anything. Nothing you say can help you at this point.
If you are arrested, or if your home or office is raided, the only words out of your mouth should be, "I want to speak with a lawyer." Then immediately call an experienced Medicaid fraud attorney to start preparing your defense and protecting your rights.
