How Healthcare Fraud Charges Are Brought

Charges typically arise from practices like submitting false bills, fraudulent coding, and illicit kickbacks. These actions prompt investigations by state authorities, resulting in charges if there is evidence. Key elements of include the intention to deceive, actual deceit, and the detrimental impact on healthcare programs.

Common Forms of Healthcare Fraud

Healthcare fraud can take forms, such as:

  • False Billing: Filing claims for services that were never provided or overcharging for services rendered.
  • Upcoding: Invoicing for more expensive services or procedures than those actually performed.
  • Kickbacks: Receiving payments for referrals linked to services covered by healthcare programs.
  • Unbundling: Separating services that should be billed together to inflate reimbursement amounts.

Consequences of Healthcare Fraud

The repercussions are severe and may involve fines, repayment of funds, exclusion from participating in healthcare programs, and imprisonment. The seriousness of these punishments is determined based on the extent of the fraud committed and its financial impact on the healthcare system. Federal guidelines for sentencing consider factors such as the level of loss, the role played by the defendant, and any attempts to obstruct justice.

Defending Against Charges of Healthcare Fraud

Facing allegations of fraud can be daunting. There are defense strategies that can be employed:

  • Lack of Intent: Showing that there was no intention to partake in fraudulent activities.
  • Mistakes: Proving that billing errors were mistakes rather than deliberate fraud.
  • Coercion: Presenting evidence that the defendant was coerced or pressured into engaging in fraudulent behaviors.
