The U.S. Medicare and Medicaid programs are defrauded of billions of dollars every year. The government is serious about reducing this fraud, which means prosecutors are very aggressive in charging people and seeking convictions. Criminal charges can be filed against individuals and entities ranging from a single doctor to an entire health care facility to Medicare and Medicaid recipients themselves.
I am Greenville health care fraud defense lawyer Keith A. Williams, and much of my work revolves around defending clients against white collar crimes in North Carolina state and federal courts. I will work to help shield you from the power of the government by creating an intelligent, strong defense on your behalf. Health care fraud cases are notoriously complex and involve thousands of documents, including financial records. My ability to work through this material to find weaknesses in cases will be of great value to you.
My clients include people from Greenville, Raleigh and across eastern North Carolina who are connected to the health care system in various ways, including:
- Doctors, nurses, pharmacists and home care providers
- Those who receive assistance from Medicare/Medicaid
- Hospital systems, clinics, ambulance companies and other entities
- Medical billing and coding companies
Crimes Commonly Charged Against Health Care Providers
I defend health care professionals against health care fraud charges stemming from a variety of activities, including:
- Billing for services not rendered
- Illegal importing or exporting of FDA-regulated drugs
Defense for Health Care Recipients
Federal investigations and prosecutions are increasingly targeting not just medical professionals, but those who receive medical services as well. I defend recipients who are accused of:
- Falsifying an application for Medicare/Medicaid benefits
- Forging or altering prescriptions
- Reselling prescription medications
- Creating multiple identities to obtain excess benefits
