Health care service providers doing Medicaid business with the state and federal government may unknowingly cross a line where business becomes fraud. This is not altogether surprising as the rules and regulations governing Medicaid are extremely complex. At The Law Office of James E. Tyner, PLLC we provide aggressive and experienced criminal defense representation for those charged with Medicaid fraud throughout Albany and surrounding areas.
Our experienced Albany criminal defense lawyer represents medical professionals and health service providers accused of state or federal Medicaid violations, including:
Providers of Medicaid-sponsored services often receive seemingly harmless letters or calls from Medicaid fraud investigators. Do not mistake a request for files to be a simple audit. State and federal authorities cracking down on Medicaid abuse could quietly be gathering evidence against you. While you may not even know you violated the law, you can still be charged.
Do not attempt to address these matters on your own. The likelihood of facing criminal charges for Medicaid fraud often comes down to how the case is handled during the initial investigation. Consultation with a skilled attorney is critical. Talk to us before you discuss anything with law enforcement authorities.
From claims of overbilling and billing for services never provided, to allegations of receiving kickbacks and filing false insurance claims, we know how to protect your rights. We also handle related charges for insurance fraud, mail fraud and wire fraud.
