Health Care Fraud

Have you become the target of a health care fraud investigation? The federal government is relentlessly investigating the billing practices of medical providers in Louisiana and across the nation. Whether you are under investigation or have been charged, you need a health care fraud defense attorney on your side now. Call 225.767.7778 for a free initial consultation with an attorney from the law office of Steven J. Moore, in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

Medical providers facing federal charges involving health care fraud, Medicare fraud or Medicaid fraud face much more than serious fines and imprisonment. In addition to criminal consequences, health care fraud charges could lead to the loss of a medical license and permanent reputation damage. Additionally, if your medical practice is under scrutiny, you could risk losing your business.

Medicare Fraud ∙ Medicaid Fraud ∙ Health Insurance Fraud

Accusations of health insurance fraud or health care fraud demand an experienced criminal defense attorney with sophisticated knowledge of health care law, investigation procedures and complex medical coding practices. With more than 20 years of legal experience, we defend doctors, clinics, hospitals, providers of durable medical equipment, medical billing and coding companies and other businesses facing federal investigations related to:

  • Overbilling for services
  • Fraudulently billing for services not rendered
  • Prescribing unnecessary services in order to bill additional services
  • Unbundling services billed
  • Referral kickbacks or self-referrals

Many of our clients find themselves facing serious criminal charges after making decisions to avoid other financial crises. We don't judge. We take action. Other clients face serious charges as a result of honest errors — either mistakes made in their billing procedures or mistakes made by overzealous investigators analyzing those procedures.

We go to work immediately investigating your records and working with financial experts to defend your billing practices and other health care practices that have come under scrutiny. Contact our office to schedule a free confidential consultation about the health care fraud charges against you.
