Health Care Fraud Comes In Many Forms

Health care fraud is a type of fraud charge that can include a wide variety of fraudulent activities in a health care setting. Health care fraud can include:

  • Fraud in clinical trial results
  • Pricing fraud for pharmaceuticals
  • Billing for defective test kits
  • Knowing the sale of defective medical devices
  • Violation of anti-kickback laws in a health care setting
  • Medicare and Medicaid fraud
  • Providing unlicensed medical services
  • Phantom and overbilling – private health insurance, Medicaid and Medicare

This form of fraud is also one of the most common charges brought under the False Claims Act. Because of this, whistleblowers are encouraged to come forward when they believe fraud has occurred, and they receive incentives to do so. This can make fighting back against these charges particularly difficult, but working with a skilled lawyer can be key to creating the most favorable results for you.
