Under the False Claim Act, medical and health care providers who defraud the government via Medicare, Medicaid, or another type of government program can be held liable for their misconduct. Healthcare spending is already at an all-time high, and fraud can push the costs for government programs like these even higher – at the taxpayer’s expense. If you are aware of a health care provider or a medical practice committing health care fraud, then it is important that you report it. Talk to our Atlanta health care fraud lawyer at The Wallace Law Firm, LLC to learn more about filing a claim.
Examples of health care fraud that you should report include:
- Billing for services not provided
- Accepting kickbacks, such as payments for referral of patients or services through government health care programs
- Upcoding services, which includes submitting claims for more expensive and unnecessary procedures
- Unbundling medical services, which includes billing each condition separately to increase reimbursements
- Diagnosing and treating patients with conditions they do not have
