Criminal Defense Lawyer for Medicare / Medicaid Fraud
As a professional physician or other health care provider, if you have contracted to accept Medicare or Medicaid, you have already signed away significant rights. The Insurance company who is administering these claims has the contractual right to come to your office unannounced and audit your records, billing and medical, and copy these records to be turned over to the State Attorney General’s office of insurance fraud for prosecution. They may also seize your equipment and even your personal assets for forfeiture. They can put you out of business by these tactics, even without an indictment and way before any trial and finding of guilt. Even if you are eventually acquitted the damage is done, to your practice and your reputation. Only extremely aggressive defense tactics on both the criminal and civil courts can help you now. The State and the Federal Government are extremely aggressive in prosecuting these types of cases. You need representation equally aggressive. The time to contact your attorney is as soon as you even suspect there may be an investigation into you practice. Time is of the essence. Call me today if you are under investigation of feel there may be some grey area in the way business is conducted.
What to Do if You are Arrested for Medicare / Medicaid Insurance Fraud Charges
Do not try to mitigate the charge. Do not admit to anything by telling your side of the story to police. If you are charged, or even about to be charged, do not talk to the police. Period. Do not try to defend the alleged healthcare, Medicare/Medicaid fraud charge. The only person you should talk to is a criminal defense attorney who can review your fraud charges. The police, on the other hand, when questioning you, are not your friends. Although they appear friendly as such, that is how they do their job to get information to hold against you. Be polite, yes, but be firm, and request a call to a criminal defense lawyer at your first opportunity and continue to remain silent in the meantime.
Joel Bacher: Wayne, Paterson and Passaic County Medicaid / Medicare Fraud Attorney
If you or someone you know has been arrested on a Medicare fraud charge, I urge you to contact an experienced criminal defense attorney for representation and counsel. The State’s prosecutor’s office will always have the responsibility of proving you committed the offense beyond a reasonable doubt. Not only is this hard to satisfy a fraud charge, but if the Court has any reason to believe you did not commit every element to the crime, the charges against you may be reduced or dismissed. I, Joel Bacher, am here to defend your rights. I have, for forty years, successfully defended numerous charges that include health insurance fraud. My Wayne law office has achieved numerous acquittals, dismissals and downgrading of charges for a wide range of insurance fraud crimes. We prepare thoroughly for every case in the event of trial. We believe the way to mitigate if not dismiss an Medicaid / Medicare fraud charge is to negotiate and litigate from a position of strength.
