High-Quality Legal Representation In Kentucky And Indiana


Defense Against Medicare And Medicaid Fraud Charges

Medicare and Medicaid fraud is one of the most frequent subjects of whistleblower actions and government investigations – and the authorities aggressively prosecute offenders.

At Omega Law PLLC, we represent clients in Kentucky and Indiana who are under investigation as well as those who are already under indictment. No matter what the circumstances, our lawyers will make your interests a priority and provide you with a robust defense.

What Is Medicare Or Medicaid Fraud?

Medicare and Medicaid fraud can take various forms, but here are some common examples:

  • Billing for services not rendered or billing patients not actually seen
  • Upcoding, or purposefully using incorrect billing codes to charge higher prices
  • Unbundling, or billing for each step of a procedure separately to raise the cost
  • Kickbacks or bribes in exchange for patient referrals
  • Intentionally misdiagnosing patients or exaggerating the severity of their condition
  • Submitting multiple claims for reimbursement for the same services
  • Kickbacks to physicians, wholesalers or pharmacies to push certain drugs or devices
  • Artificially inflating the cost of prescriptions to inflate the government’s reimbursement
  • Using someone else’s Medicare or Medicaid coverage through fraud or identity theft

All health care fraud is treated very seriously, so a conviction can bring massive fines (often directly proportional to the value of the alleged fraud) and prison terms that can range from several years to life, in addition to the consequences for your professional license. You need legal representation who has experience with federal charges, and you need it fast.
