What are the penalties for a federal crime like Medicare fraud?By robertslaw, In Federal Crimes, 0 Comments
When someone is charged with Medicare fraud, it is a federal crime. This means that the penalties quickly become very serious.
Medicare fraud can be committed by a single individual, a group of people or an institution. Some examples of Medicare fraud include:
— Billing for services that were never provided or for supplies that were never used
— Billing for an appointment that the Medicare patient didn’t keep
— Billing for a more extensive procedure than what was actually done
— Using codes on claims that shouldn’t be used, such as billing for unbundled codes
