Health Care Fraud & Prescription Fraud Lawyers

Health care and prescription fraud, also known as pharmacy fraud, are serious legal matters. If you’ve recently become the target of a federal criminal investigation, you’ll need to act quickly. Hiring a competent federal criminal defense attorney should be the first thing on your priority list. If you’ve already been arrested, it’s critical that you retain an attorney as soon as possible. Making statements to the dea, the Medicaid Fraud Control Unit, local authorities, or even the department of health can have devastating effects on your case. This informative article will explain the different types of fraud, the potential consequences of committing fraud, and how an attorney can help.

How to Determine if You’re Under Investigation and How to Handle the Matter

There are several ways that you’ll find out that you’ve been or will be under investigation for healthcare or prescription fraud. Perhaps the most prominent way is by having a dea/defense-lawyers/dea-search-warrants/” >search warrant for your home or place of business or a DEA or local law enforcement officer shows up. This is typically done at the most inconvenient time of day where the agents will most likely find you. A “target letter” is a letter from the prosecuting attorney for the agency that puts you on notice that you’re under investigation. This may also be accompanied with or is substituted with a subpoena to turn over information, evidence, and records. It’s also possible for your co-workers and even friends and family to be targeted by questioning agents. Agents have been known to approach you at home or work to question you as well. While there are a few other ways, these are among the most common.

Talking to the agent is never a good idea. Their job as law enforcement is to investigate and potentially charge you with a crime. Agents are skilled investigators that will utilize a variety of tactics to lead you into self-incrimination. In this scenario, it’s better to not speak until you’ve retained an attorney to assist you with the interrogation process. Even the most seemingly innocent questions can be used against you if they yield valuable information for the investigator.

Common Types of Healthcare and Prescription Fraud

Healthcare fraud and prescription fraud tend to have some overlapping characteristics. Since these are typically considered to be “white collar” crimes, money is usually involved in one way or another. Overbilling, ghost billing, accepting bribes or “kickbacks,” and refilling scripts without permission are also incredibly common matters that involve money. These issues also often give rise to insurance fraud, so it’s incredibly wise to ensure that thorough recordkeeping practices are in place if the alleged crime hasn’t taken place.

The dea/defense-lawyers/dea-drug-diversion-lawyers/”>DEA also monitors for drug diversion from pharmacies that are essentially supplying street-level dealers. This has become a huge concern within the last decade and is an epidemic. In this scenario, hiring a highly skilled federal criminal defense attorney is an absolute must.

Time is of the Essence, Retain an Attorney, Today!

If you’re aware that you’re the target of an investigation or if you’ve been arrested due to an investigation, contact an attorney at once. Handling these matters on your own can result in significant jail time and financial penalties. While the courts allow for pro se litigants, no sympathy for lack of knowledge or experience is given. A skilled federal criminal defense attorney can put together a game plan that’ll significantly reduce your penalties or avoid them altogether. Get in touch with our offices, and an attorney will review your case to determine the best course of action for the matter.

I was hesitant to hire the Spodek Law Group. I read reviews and knew they have a great reputation. However, I thought I would spend money and not see or speak to my attorney. From the beginning to end of my case Todd and the entire staff were available and willing to help. We worked towards and end result that was way above my expectation and Todd delivered. I am forever grateful for patience and long days and night spent working on my case. Thanks Todd and the entire team!

My attorney at Spodek was Abigail. She was very knowledgeable and helpful with all my questions and concerns, as well as responsive. Her fees are affordable and Abigail took the time to make sure I understood everything relating to my case. I highly recommend Abigail and will request her services in the future.

I'm very satisfied with the services rendered by Todd, Alex and Mary Lou. I whole heartedly recommend Spodek Law Group . I've worked with and have retained other attorneys in the past with Todd's firm being the cream of the crop for many reasons. A very serious legal matter was resolved after a year's hard work and effort. Todd expertly guided me through the process and was able to navigate and make the good journey bearable as well as successful. Mary Lou initially provided excellent assistance before referring my case to Todd. Alex's support was effective and timely. The customer portal (MyCase) is an invaluable communication tool that also kept track of my case. Various aspects of my case were explained and there were several options provided but I made the final decision of how the case would be handled. The legal fee was reasonable considering the effort and amount of work plus it was a flat fee regardless of the length of time required to conclude my case. Todd made himself available to me and we had many scheduled meetings to go over the progress and to discuss the next steps. I felt more confident after many discussions with him. You will not go wrong choosing Spodek Law Group for legal matters.

Being that it was the first time that I was in need of an attorney, I was afraid and hesitant and knew I needed the absolute best. It is beyond understood why Spodek Law Group has a reputation of being the top, if not the best law firm in New York. Alex and Abigail were there every step of the way even at the most unconvenient hours. I could not have asked for more. They are extremely good at what they do and they delivered much much more than just winning my case. A big thank you to Alex and Abigail for all the guidance and counseling and their upmost loyal support that extended far more than just legally. If you need the absolute best than don't hesitate to hire Spodek Law Firm.

I cannot tell you how thankful I am to Todd and Alex for their hard work and dedication to my case. I had never been in any trouble before but I had an unfortunate event occur and in the midst of COVID-19 at that therefore I knew I needed a team that was dedicated to my success. Today- my case has been finalized and I’m walking away with no record and can continue life as a mother and a Grad student worry free. I cannot express enough gratitude for their assistance.
