Medicare Recipient Fraud

In order to qualify for Medicare, you have to meet certain income and asset requirements. Through creative estate planning, some people can legally transfer assets to family members and other in order to qualify. However, others mislead Medicare by falsifying the application. Eventually, an asset check may uncover this deception which may land the receipient in big trouble. Medicare recipents have also been arrested for fraud for selling items purchased by Medicare such as wheelchairs in addition to taking kick backs from providers. Regardless of the facts of your case, our team of tough, smart New Jersey Medicare fraud attorneys will help you through this difficult time.

Medicare provider fraud

Medicare provider fraud is very common and investigations target doctors as well as suppliers. Our New Jersey fraud defense lawyers have found that Medicare provider fraud can include: billing for services that were not provided, e.g., x-ray that was not taken; duplicate billing, either billing Medicare twice or billing Medicare and private insurance; requiring the recipient to return for more visits than what is necessary; unnecessary tests and treatment; upcoding, e.g., billing for a long, comprehensive visit for just a short, simple visit; having an unlicensed person perform services that only a licensed professional should render; billing for more time than actually provided; billing for an office visit that did not actually occur; accepting payment from another provider as a result of referring a patient to the other provider, otherwise known as a kick back; waiving copayment or deductible.

Our New Jersey Medicare fraud lawyers have also seen that suppliers of medical equipment that accept Medicare can also be the subject of Medicare fraud investigations. Supplier fraud can result from high pressure sales tactics to get the recipient to accept expensive equipment or services that are unnecessary, offers non-medical transport and bills it to Medicare, offers housekeeping and bills it to Medicare, billing Medicare for equipment to people in nursing homes, kickbacks to receipients or other providers for accepting the suppliers goods or services, billing Medicare for wheelchairs, scooters and other equipment when the receipient does not qualify and billing Medicare higher fees than non-Medicare customers. As you can see, there are many ways where providers to become the target of a Medicare fraud investigation either though intentional conduct, mistakes or ignorance of the law. Regardless of how and why you and your company became the subject of Medicare fraud investigation, call the team of tough, smart New Jersey fraud defense lawyers that know you to protect you.
