Defending Medicare Fraud Charges in New York City
The Experience Behind the New York City Firm
Mr. Bederow is experienced in handling cases involving high-profile
criminal matters. He possesses particular proficiency handling cases involving charges of
white collar crime, such as Medicare fraud. Mr. Bederow's skill in this area is the result
of extensive criminal defense experience through his current position
and his former position as a prosecutor for the Manhattan District Attorney's Office.
The Investigation Process
State and federal government agencies have increased the resources available
to investigate Medicare fraud. Investigating authorities will arrive at
the location where they expect the fraud to have occurred, or where records
of the fraud are kept, and leave with anything they believe is relevant.
This includes medical records, files, and computers.
Knowing how to respond to a Medicare fraud investigation or defend against
an allegation is daunting without a lawyer's guidance. At the
Law Office of Mark A. Bederow, P.C., we have defended home health care providers, hospitals, private nurses,
and doctors facing Medicare fraud allegations, as well as individuals
who have allowed someone else to use their Medicare card.
Types of Medicare Fraud
Actions that involve wrongfully accessing payments from the Medicare system
often constitute fraud.
Some of the more common forms of Medicare fraud involve:
- Billing Medicare for services that were not rendered
- Patient kickbacks
- Inflating bills with unnecessary services
- Unbundling services
Government agencies have begun aggressively pursuing entities they suspect
of perpetrating Medicare fraud. Their investigative methods can be disruptive
personally and to businesses. If you are under investigation or facing
