Prosecutions for healthcare fraud allege certain fraudulent activities committed by healthcare professionals within the medical industry. These allegations are usually based on claims that medical providers or their offices make false claims to state or federal agencies such as Medicare or Medicaid to obtain payment for treatment or services that were not provided.
In light of recent high-profile healthcare fraud cases in Tennessee, healthcare fraud investigations have become more intense and indictments have become more prevalent. At Knox Defense, our lawyers are experienced in the defense of healthcare professionals facing fraud investigations and allegations at both the state and federal levels.
Healthcare Related Fraud
The crimes targeted within the healthcare industry extend beyond prescription drug fraud and include various offenses such as:
- Prescription drug diversion or other fraud
- Medicare fraud
- Double billing
- Billing for unnecessary services or services not provided
- Non-compliance with government regulations
- Self-referrals (prohibited by the Stark Law)
- Kickbacks, bribes, and referral fees
- Drug shorting/refill schemes
