Accusation of medical fraud can have serious consequences

Any criminal conviction can result in major penalties. However, if you are a caregiver or a medical provider in Minnesota, you realize that your career is at risk if you end up being charged with fraud. For this reason, it is critical that you consult an attorney right away if you are accused of engaging in health care fraud.

Fraud related to health care comes in various forms. For example, you could face charges of prescription fraud or of attaining false certification. In addition, authorities may accuse you of submitting fake medical insurance claims, for example.

Other types of medical care fraud include overbilling for Medicare or Medicaid, as well as billing services that are not bundled. You may also face serious legal issues if you reportedly bill ghost patients or bill for any service that you did not actually provide. Violating anti-kickback laws or diverting prescription medication are can additionally lead to time behind bars.

An attorney in Minnesota will thoroughly examine your situation to determine what the best course of action may be. For instance, if prosecutors appear to have substantial evidence proving their allegations, it may be in your best interest to seek a plea deal with the prosecution. This may lead to a lighter sentence for you. Otherwise, it may be best for you to go to trial to fight the fraud charges. You cannot receive a conviction unless prosecutors are able to prove the charges beyond a reasonable doubt -- a burden of proof that is generally difficult to achieve.
