Lawyer Dan C. Guthrie Jr. from Law Offices of Dan C. Guthrie, Jr., is an accomplished white collar criminal defense attorney and has successfully defended numerous clients at the investigative, indictment and trial stages of health care fraud cases.

Medicare And Medicaid Fraud Are The Most Common

Medicare and health care fraud allegations can involve many different types of conduct, including:

  • Upcoding or using incorrect current procedural technology (CPT) codes to bill for more expensive procedures than those actually rendered
  • Unbundling or charging medical procedures separately when they should be charged together
  • Billing for services not rendered
  • Performing unnecessary medical procedures to receive insurance payments
  • Misrepresenting elective surgeries as medically necessary procedures
  • Receiving or paying kickbacks

The fact is that billing procedures for Medicare and Medicaid are extremely confusing, even for people who work in these agencies. As a result, proving intent in these prosecutions can be difficult.
