Facing Health Care Fraud Charges?

In recent years, the federal government has increased resources dedicated to identifying health care fraud, Medicare fraud and Medicaid fraud. Even if you are innocent, a routine audit or analysis of procedures and billing records may prompt an intensive investigation that could result in possible criminal charges.

As a health care provider or medical professional, you cannot afford the damage to your reputation and possible loss of your license, much less a criminal conviction. If you believe you are under investigation for health care fraud, or if you have already been charged, you need effective legal representation in the Cleveland area as soon as possible.
