Essex County Fraud Lawyers

New Jersey Medicaid Fraud Lawyers

Medicaid is a federal/state cost-sharing program that provides health care to people who are unable to pay for such care. Medicaid Fraud almost always targets the providers of services who accept Medicaid.

Medicaid Provider Fraud

Our New Jersey Medicaid Fraud Lawyers have found that Medicaid providers are common targets of Medicaid fraud investigations. Providers include doctors, dentists, hospitals, nursing homes, pharmacies, clinics, counselors, personal care/homemaker chore companies, and any other individual or company that is paid by the Medicaid program. If any of these providers intentionally misrepresent the services rendered in order to increase their reimbursement from Medicaid, they may charged with Medicaid fraud. Of course, not all fraud investigations are due to intentional actions. However, a billing mistake may be difficult to distinguish from intentional fraud. Thus, a team of tough, smart New Jersey Medicaid fraud attorneys can fight the case to argue that while the conduct did occur, it was just an accident and not an intentional scheme to defraud. As a result, a lawyer can help the provider avoid charges and enter into a civil settlement for any over payments.

Examples of provider fraud include, billing for medical services not actually performed, also known as phantom billing; billing for a more expensive service than was actually rendered, also known as upcoding; billing for several services that should be combined into one billing, also known as unbundling; billing twice for the same medical service; billing for sessions that are longer than what was actually performed, a type of upcoding; dispensing generic drugs and billing for brand-name drugs; giving or accepting something in return for medical services, also known as a kickback; bribery; providing unnecessary services; false cost reports; and embezzlement of recipient funds. As you can see, there are many ways to commit medicaid fraud and many billing errors and other misunderstandings can lead to many providers becomming a target of a medicaid fraud investigation. Calling an attorney at the first sign of danger can mean all the difference in the outcome of your New Jersey Medicaid fraud case.
