Medicaid/Medicare Fraud

Increasingly, medical providers are encountering issues with state and federal government regulatory agencies regarding claims for inappropriate dispensing of Medicaid and Medicare medical services and medications. Such complaints may include failure to provide services and inappropriate coding of services provided, among others. Such complaints can result in suspension of pending payments, denial of eligibility to participate in reimbursement programs, civil suits to recoup money paid and, in some cases, criminal prosecution for Medicaid/Medicare fraud. The lawyers at Shaw & Morrow have defended medical providers at the investigative stage as well as in both civil litigation and criminal prosecution. We stand ready to advise and aggressively defend providers in this complex area.
