Strong Legal Guidance For Fraud And Abuse Audits
All members of the health care industry are accustomed to the broad range of state and federal regulations that they must comply with. Allegations of health care fraud and abuse are important matters that health care professionals need to treat seriously.
I am lawyer Dan Icenogle, and at my law firm Icenogle & Associates, LLC, I represent physicians, nurses and health care providers who are facing an audit stemming from alleged instances of:
- Medicare fraud
- Medicaid fraud
- HIPAA privacy violations
- Stark Law violations
Additionally, I advise hospitals, multidisciplinary wellness centers, nursing homes and other medical facilities on implementing policies and procedures to better ensure they are complying with all state and federal regulations.
Medicare And Medicaid Fraud
In recent years, government agencies have begun to more aggressively investigate alleged instances of Medicare and Medicaid fraud. Medicare fraud is investigated by federal agencies while Medicaid fraud is a state issue. These audits may seek to uncover evidence of false invoicing, billing for unprovided services or other fraudulent practices. If proven, Medicare and Medicaid fraud can lead to criminal charges, large fines or a loss of your medical license.
While it is critical to respond to an audit letter promptly, it is more important to consult with a health law attorney first. I bring more than 25 years of legal experience to your case. I will work closely with you to determine what information you need to submit and how best to respond to the government agency that is auditing you and your practice.
