Health Care Fraud

In most instances, health care fraud is committed in an attempt to save money or gain money through the Medicaid or Medicare system. Health care fraud is considered a federal offense because you are falsifying the Medicaid and Medicare system, both federal initiatives.

If you have been arrested or accused of health care fraud, contact our Minneapolis health care fraud lawyer immediately. Even if you have not been arrested for the crime but are receiving suspicious letters or phone calls at home or at work, it is a good idea to consult our lawyers before it’s too late.

Our firm represents people across Minnesota and can handle the following health care fraud crimes:

  • Medicaid and Medicare fraud
  • Kickback schemes
  • Uncoding and other forms of billing and accounting fraud
  • Falsifying private insurance claims
  • Over charging for medical services or retaining overpayments
  • Billing for medical services that were not provided
  • Falsifying medical services that were not provided
  • Receiving rebates for medical services that were not provided
  • Lying about income, number of children, assets, etc. on your health care records


Anyone can be accused of health care fraud but often doctors and other medical professionals are the ones who face these criminal convictions. Often a simple audit will uncover problems with your medical accounting scheme which can end up costing you your entire business. This may not be your fault; however complexities of the system may make you look guilty of a crime you did not commit.

Do not risk your professional and personal career – speak to our qualified white collar crime attorneys about how we can help you out of the sticky legal situation.

Health care fraud can be confusing on its own. However, what makes it even more complicated is that often this crime will be in conjunction with another white collar crime such as mail fraud (if using the postal service), wire fraud (if using a fax machine or internet) or obstruction of justice (if you attempt to destroy any records that you do not want to police to see).
