Any healthcare provider that bills Medicare or Medicaid, or related programs under a VA health benefit or otherwise, is exposed to prosecution under the False Claims Act. The government may bring a case against a provider for the submission of a false claim under either a civil proceeding or a criminal proceeding. These cases are highly technical and turn on technicalities of the program regulatory framework. A comprehensive review of the available records and knowledge of the healthcare laws, rules, and regulations is mandatory for a firm to be of assistance in such a case. The qui tam attorneys at Kennedy have the background necessary for defending against such claims, whether brought by the government, or an individual seeking to share in a recovery by the government.
