When it comes to white collar crime, the number of Healthcare Fraud cases is increasing. With Obama's new healthcare package, it seems individuals are taking advantage of programs on all sides, hospitals, healthcare practitioners, patients, drug companies and more. When a Los Angeles White Collar Defense Lawyer represents someone charged with Healthcare Fraud, he has to realize that it is an incredibly complex issue.
Recently, in Ohio, a federal court saw a woman and three of her former employees charged with Healthcare Fraud. They worked for a pharmaceutical company as sales people, insurance verifiers and more. The charges they are facing include: concealment of records from a federal investigation; conspiracy to conceal records from a federal investigation; two counts of conspiracy to obstruct a criminal investigation of a health care offense; and two counts of obstruction of a criminal investigation of a health care offense. These are not just criminal charges, they are felonies on the federal level, which means that serious prison time will be handed down for any of these individuals who are convicted of a crime. These crimes allegedly took place between 1987 and 2008 and revolve around over billing medical insurance companies for drugs and services.
In order for any Defense Attorney to provide top notch legal services, he must review countless pages of information from both sides. Insurance companies surely will have countless boxes of files, the FBI has tons of more pages of paper, and even the individuals themselves have as many pages of notes, evidence and so forth. Only a skilled lawyer who understands the complexities of white collar crime, and the challenges of any Healthcare Fraud Defense case, can provide the type of legal services needed.
