Today there are a lot of people who receive healthcare in their home. Submitting a false bill for home healthcare is the same as any other healthcare fraud. In a past home healthcare fraud case attorney Mark Horwitz was able to establish that one bottle of oxygen was being delivered but the company was billing for ten.
"I actually had two separate trials on it," says Mark Horwitz, "the first trial resulted in convictions of four family members and the second trial was the fifth person." The defense tried to show that the last person had no knowledge of the criminal conduct. While this can be a viable defense, as a prosecutor, Mark Horwitz was still able to get a conviction.
