Health Care Fraud
Health care is arguably the most highly regulated industry in the United States. Numerous laws strictly govern every aspect of the business, and even a simple mistake has the potential to put you on federal investigators’ radar. If you are found to have violated federal law, it could have serious implications for your licensure and your ability to work in the health care field.
If you have received a target letter indicating that you are being investigated for fraud or a subpoena from the Office of the Inspector General (OIG), contact a defense lawyer before you respond. These are both indicators that the federal government has already begun looking into your affairs, and taking a strong defensive stance is essential to protecting your long-term interests.
