Healthcare Fraud Attorney Tampa
If you or your company has been accused of healthcare fraud, it is critical that you immediately find an experienced and tenacious healthcare fraud attorney to lead your defense. Healthcare fraud is such a serious crime that the FBI is responsible for exposing and investigating instances of healthcare fraud by partnering with other federal agencies like the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and Defense Criminal Investigative Service (DCIS). You cannot afford to face charges of healthcare fraud without the very best legal specialists on your side.
The experts at The Law Office of Robert Eckard & Associates have years of experience successfully defending Florida doctors and medical professionals against accusations of healthcare fraud. We will stand by your side to build a strong defense against your state and federal charges.
Healthcare and Insurance Fraud Charges
Healthcare fraud occurs when a service provider like a doctor misrepresents information to collect insurance payments that he would not otherwise be entitled to receive. There are many different tactics used to commit healthcare fraud:
- Billing for services that were never rendered
- Billing for more expensive services or procedures than were actually provided
- Performing medically unnecessary services for the purpose of generating insurance payments
- Misrepresenting non-covered treatments as medically necessary covered treatments
- Unbundling, or billing each step of a procedure as if it were a separate procedure
- Accepting kickbacks for patient referrals
