Accused Of Health Care Fraud?

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 Williams, and much of my work revolves around defending clients against white collar crimes in North Carolina federal courts. I will leverage more than 25 years of experience to help shield you from the power of the government by creating an intelligent, strong defense on your behalf.

Complex Cases That Require Analyzing Thousands Of Documents

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.

I have experience in this area and have helped clients across Eastern North Carolina. Here are some of the people who could be charged with health care fraud:

  • 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

Common Charges Against Health Care Providers

Health care fraud charges can stem from a variety of activities, including:

  • Billing for services not rendered
  • Upcoding
  • Overbilling
  • Kickbacks
  • Self-referrals
  • Illegal importing or exporting of FDA-regulated drugs

Defending Health Care Recipients

Federal investigations and prosecutions are increasingly targeting not just medical professionals, but those who receive medical services as well. Some of these criminal charges may relate to:

  • Falsifying an application for Medicare/Medicaid benefits
  • Forging or altering prescriptions
  • Reselling prescription medications
  • Creating multiple identities to obtain excess benefits

If you are under investigation or have been charged with health care fraud in North Carolina, protect yourself by retaining an attorney who understands the federal system.
