Charged with Health Care Fraud?

Health care fraud can be difficult to establish. While accounting or billing errors may be discovered, prosecutors must establish intent to commit fraud to prove that a crime has been committed. At Rothman & Associates, P.A., our Miami health care fraud defense attorneys represent doctors, nurses, hospitals, and corporate health care organizations in health care fraud cases. Working with a team of investigators, accountants, and forensic specialists, we meticulously analyze the government’s case against our client, identifying unsubstantiated conclusions, the mishandling of evidence, and questionable testimony on the part of “qui tam” whistle blowers. Even when financial inconsistencies are evident, proving they represent a pattern of intent to defraud the government is never simple.

If you have been charged with committing health care fraud, contact Rothman & Associates, P.A. today before you speak with government investigators or law enforcement officers. We will evaluate your case and determine the best legal options available to you.

Retaining legal representation is of the utmost importance. Call our Firm today at (305) 358-9000.

Health Care Fraud and Criminal Charges

  • Medicaid fraud

Why it is Important Not to Speak with Investigators

Federal investigators are unlikely to tell you everything they know when they speak with you. You may be the target of an investigation or only a suspect. If you say something that contradicts what someone else has told them, not only could you be charged with a crime, but what you say could be used against you later at trial. Even if you are innocent or have very little knowledge of accounting and billing inconsistencies, selective testimony and evidence may convince investigators and prosecutors of your guilt.

‘Qui Tam’ Whistle blowers – An Incentive to Convict

Under the “qui tam” provision of the False Claims Act, a private individual, or whistleblower, with knowledge of fraud committed against the federal government may bring a lawsuit on behalf of the United States. The whistleblower need not have been personally harmed by the conduct. He or she only needs to allege that the defendant knowingly submitted false or fraudulent claims to the United States.

Under the “qui tam” provision of the False Claims Act, whistle blowers receive a percentage of any losses recovered by the federal government in fraud cases. As a result, “qui tam” whistle blowers have a financial incentive to help the government’s case as much as possible. At Rothman & Associates, P.A., our white collar crime lawyers in Miami question the validity of their allegations by identifying questionable motives, testimony, and evidence provided by “qui tam” whistle blowers.
