Health Care Fraud
Health care fraud has been a priority on the federal government’s radar for many years. With new health care laws in place, there will certainly be continued monitoring of Medicaid reimbursement submissions for any suspicious activity. Likewise, investigators are also apt to keep a close eye on Medicare fraud crimes against insurance companies.
If you have been accused of health care fraud or another federal white collar crime, you will be up against prosecutors with significant resources at their disposal. In order to stand a fighting chance, you need a strong attorney on your side. This is what you will find when you work with The Law Office of Jessica Koester, LLC.
Have You Been Accused Of Medicare Or Medicaid Fraud In Illinois?
In any health care fraud case, the burden is on the prosecution to prove that the defendant had a willful intent to defraud the government or private insurance company. In reality, many doctors accused of these crimes did not knowingly commit them. Medicare and Medicaid reimbursement forms are complex and not easily understandable for even the most intelligent of people. Bookkeeping and coding errors are often mistaken as intentional crimes.
