The consequences of Medicaid fraud criminal charges can be devastating. The mere filing of criminal charges can result in your suspension from the Medicaid program, an inability to collect payment on claims for services already provided, and professional disciplinary charges. A conviction can result in a lengthy prison sentence, suspension or revocation of your professional license, exclusion from the Medicaid and Medicare programs, loss of staff privileges, and a court order to pay restitution, fines, and court costs.
You need a trial lawyer who can navigate the complex laws, rules, and regulations that govern Medicaid and present a compelling defense to a judge and jury. That combination is not easy to find. While there are many capable trial lawyers, and many knowledgeable Medicaid regulatory lawyers, very few lawyers can bring a Medicaid fraud case to trial.
