FAQs About Health Care Fraud Charges
In most instances, health care fraud relates to an attempt to save money or make money through the Medicaid or Medicare system. It’s charged at the federal level, because you are accused of falsifying information provided to either the Medicaid or Medicare system, both federal initiatives.
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 Bruce Rivers at the Rivers Law Firm, P.A., before it’s too late.
Advice For Professionals

This may not be your fault; however, complexities of the system may make you look guilty of a crime you did not commit.
