Medicare Fraud Protecting Your Rights & Defending Your Future

Medicare Fraud Defense Lawyer in St. Louis

Medicare is a federal program that provides health benefits to people over the age of 65, and in some cases, younger individuals with disabilities. The Medicare department reports billions of dollars in losses every year due to fraudulent claims. If you have been accused of a fraudulent Medicare claim, remember – you are innocent until proven guilty.

Medicare Fraud Examples

Medicare fraud accusations come in many shapes and forms.

Who can be accused?

  • Healthcare providers
  • Suppliers
  • Individuals
  • Companies / employers

What are some examples of Medicare fraud?

  • Healthcare providers can be accused of billing Medicare for made-up services. If Medicare believes the patient never received the services the healthcare provider claims, this could warrant a fraud allegation.
  • Medical equipment suppliers might be accused of billing Medicare for supplies they never provided.
  • Individuals might be accused of making false claims or using someone else's Medicare card to receive treatment or obtain medical supplies.
