Helping Health Care Professionals Charged With Fraud
At The Figueroa Law Firm, P.A., we defend doctors and other medical professionals against charges of health care fraud and insurance fraud. We recognize that these are charges that can end careers. With more than 10 years of experience, we know how to build defense strategies designed to protect the careers of health care professionals and prevent the serious repercussions that accompany convictions for Medicare/Medicaid fraud and other types of health insurance fraud. Our lawyers have worked with medical professionals and medical facilities in Orlando and throughout Florida.
Upcoding And Other Insurance Fraud Allegations
Coding and billing insurance companies for medical services is a very precise art. One mistake could lead to overbilling, which could then lead to charges of insurance fraud. Our attorneys are well-versed in cases involving medical facilities accused of upcoding, or billing for a more expensive service than the one that was actually provided. This is one of the most common forms of health insurance fraud. Other types involve billing for services that were simply not provided or billing for services that were provided, but not required.
These charges may be preceded by an investigation. We encourage health care professionals and medical facilities to get in touch with us as soon as possible, even if no charges have been filed. Getting our lawyers involved in the investigation phase may allow us to better your position and prevent charges from even being filed.
