Houston Criminal Defense Attorney

Houston Health Care Fraud Lawyer

Representation for Health Care Fraud Charges in Texas

To commit health care fraud, a person or business must knowingly and willfully execute or attempt to execute fraud on a heath care benefit program, or fraudulently obtain money or property from a health care benefit program in connection with the delivery of or payment for healthcare benefits, items or services. Charging a party with health care fraud is relatively simple; however, we will make the government prove fraudulent intent, which is more difficult.

The Law Offices of Jed Silverman represents individuals and businesses charged with health care fraud, including doctors, clinics, hospitals, nursing homes, long-term care facilities, dentists, laboratories, medical supply companies, medical billers and medical office managers.

Penalties for Health care Fraud in TX

If you are convicted of health insurance fraud, you could be sentenced to a prison term of up to 10 years. When the fraud causes serious bodily injury, a prison term up to 20 years may be imposed. When the fraud results in death, sentences can extend up to life in prison. In addition to a prison sentence, you could face the loss of your professional license, steep fines and years of probation.

Some of the charges often associated with health care fraud include:

  • Overbilling and double billing
  • Upcoding
  • Falsifying invoices
  • Receiving kickbacks
  • Performing unnecessary procedures and surgeries
  • Medicare and Medicaid fraud

To convict an individual or business of health care fraud, the prosecution must prove that a fraudulent claim was knowingly and intentionally submitted. Our Houston health care fraud attorney will work to show that there was no fraudulent intent on your part. In some cases, an accounting error, such as the selection of an incorrect billing code or sloppy record keeping, is misinterpreted as intentional fraud by law enforcement.
