Medicaid/Medicare Billing Fraud Lawyer

Healthcare organizations that provide services for Medicare and Medicaid recipients receive payment from the federal government for their treatments. Unfortunately, there are unethical companies that use unethical accounting and billing practices to defraud the government, resulting in billions of lost tax dollars every year. Under the False Claims Act, Medicare billing fraud lawsuits can be filed on behalf of the U.S. government by whistleblowers to recover lost funds, which may result in a sizable award for the whistleblower.

Nursing homes, hospitals and other healthcare agencies that accept Medicare or Medicaid patients bill the federal government to be reimbursed for services provided. Through billing fraud, many of these companies have stolen billions of dollars in taxpayer money, receiving payment for unorthodox treatments or services never given to Medicare patients. Often it is current or former employees that uncover when this fraud is occurring, alerting the government and filing their own lawsuit against the companies to recover lost funds.

Large Payouts for Qui Tam Lawsuits

A Qui Tam lawsuit sues a company for fraudulent use of government funds. A whistleblower that initiates the investigation and offers evidence of Medicare or Medicaid fraud is protected under the False Claims Act from retaliation from the company. They may receive a percentage of the recovered funds if the lawsuit succeeds. Whistleblowers can receive up to 30% of the recovered funds, which can result in a payment of millions of dollars. Plus, the defendant is usually responsible for paying the legal costs of the whistleblower.

If you have witnessed Medicare or Medicaid billing fraud and want to explore filing a whistleblower lawsuit, contact our team at Conley Griggs Partin LLP. Our experienced attorneys can advise you on your options. There are no upfront fees for the whistleblower to file a lawsuit on behalf of the U.S. government at our firm, and any case that we accept will be on a contingency-fee basis.
