Medicare/Medicaid Fraud

The general populous would agree that only the best should be expected from health care organizations. Unfortunately, vigilance is often required when dealing with these organizations, as it is not unheard of for companies to participate in wrongful activities such as Medicare and Medicaid Fraud. We at the Eshelman Legal Group hope to catch these organizations in the act, before they can cause major financial harm. When dealing with health care, one should come to expect legitimate practices to be carried out, rather than corrupt businesses only looking to make a profit under any means necessary; legal or not.

There are some fraudulent activities that you may not know about if you are not properly informed. A system of numeric codes is used to tie particular groups of medical services for billing services. Third party billing agencies may upcode claims, causing health care providers to be billed for procedures that are more expensive than what was actually carried out. These actions result in a higher reimbursement rate being paid to the provider. These are unacceptable practices for a health care provider. The attorneys at the Eshelman Legal Group agree that these sort of unlawful practices must be put to a stop.

Types of Fraudulent Billing Include:

  • Phantom Billing - This occurs when Medicare or Medicaid are billed for tests or services that have not been performed.
  • Double Billing - When a patient is charged twice for a procedure that was only performed once.
  • Unbundling - When Medicare or Medicaid are billed separately for related services.
  • Billing for Unnecessary Services - When health care organizations bill for services that are not necessary.

Though health care organizations have access to a variety of ways to solicit money, you are legally protected from these practices. The False Claims Act subjects health care organizations to liability for fraudulent activities. Take advantage of this, and contact the Eshelman Legal Group. The attorneys at the Eshelman Legal Group will help you fight these unlawful practices, and make sure you are financially compensated.
