Combating Charges Of Health Care Fraud

Some observers claim that medical insurance fraud is second only to illegal drug trafficking for the amount of criminal revenue it generates. For this reason, federal prosecutors are all over individuals in the health care industry whom they suspect of overcharging or deceptive actions.

The accused may be from any part of the industry: providers, patients and those who sell devices, equipment, or medicines to providers or patients. Everyone from hospital plans to ambulance companies is subject to investigation and indictment.
