Florida Criminal Defense Lawyers Handling Home Health Care Fraud Charges
Certified Criminal Trial Specialist • Florida and Nationwide Defense
The state of Florida and the federal government are cracking down on cases of health care fraud across the country, and particularly in Florida. A large number of high profile cases have been prosecuted in south Florida over the past three years, several of them involving home health care agencies and providers.
These cases are usually prosecuted at the federal level because they involve Medicare or Medicaid fraud. But, they can also involve private insurance fraud. Common charges faced by home health care agencies and providers include:
- Over-billing for services not provided
- Charging for tests or treatments that are medically unnecessary
- Upcoding or unbundling of services in order to bill more to the insurance company
- Filing false claims by providing a service that is not covered by insurance but billing for a service that is covered
- Kickbacks to patients and other care providers
- Conspiracy to defraud the government
