Healthcare Fraud Investigations & Litigation

Each year, the federal and state governments spend tens of millions of dollars investigating allegations of healthcare fraud, waste, and abuse.  And each year, those government entities recover billions of dollars from healthcare providers in settlements and judgments.

Not only does the government have various criminal statutes at its disposal, but can also bring civil cases under the federal False Claims Act and its state counterparts, as well as administrative actions for Civil Monetary Penalties, revocation, and exclusion.

Often, a healthcare provider’s first indication that they are the subject or target of a healthcare fraud investigation is receiving a Civil Investigative Demand or other type of subpoena for documents or information from the Department of Justice, HHS-OIG, or a state agency, or by receiving a knock on the door from a government agent.  It is crucial to obtain effective legal representation before responding to a subpoena or providing information to a government agent.
