Protecting Yourself from Home Health Care Fraud with Spodek Law Group
When you or a loved one requires home health care assistance, it is essential to be aware of the potential for fraud. Home health care fraud is a common type of scam that can be committed by workers who enter your home or by the owner of the company. At Spodek Law Group, our experienced attorneys are here to help you understand your rights and options when it comes to protecting yourself against home health care fraud.
The Importance of Proper Approval for Home Health Care Services
Patients who need any kind of home health care assistance must receive approval or recommendation from their physician before receiving services such as occupational therapy or skilled nursing. The person must have some medical issue that prevents them from leaving their house without assistance. At Spodek Law Group, we understand how important proper approval for home health care services is and can help guide you through this process.
Types of Home Health Care Fraud
One component of home health care fraud involves not providing necessary services while still charging insurance companies for those services. This offense is severe, and at Spodek Law Group, we take it seriously. Patients sign documents requesting specific services and allowing the agency to send someone to their homes; however, no one shows up to provide needed help. A doctor who does not provide a patient’s required treatment may falsify documents in conjunction with the fraudulent agency in order to defraud insurance companies further.
Some doctors will claim that patients are “homebound” when they are not actually confined within their homes but can leave with ease on their own accord. Our attorneys can assist you in understanding these types of scams and offer guidance on what steps should be taken next.
How Companies Commit Home Health Care Fraud
Many agencies commit home healthcare fraud by offering money directly to patients listed on signed documents stating they require certain treatments while failing actually ever providing said treatments themselves – all while continuing billing insurance providers regularly. At Spodek Law Group, we know that physicians and medical workers must keep in mind that this kind of fraud is illegal. There is always a possibility of being investigated, which could lead to charges filed against the agency and loss of their license.
Defenses Against Home Health Care Fraud
One defense against home health care fraud is claiming ignorance about the fraudulent activities taking place within an agency. At Spodek Law Group, our attorneys can help you build a strong defense and fight for your rights. You may also submit information regarding fraudulent activity if you are aware it’s happening but did not take part in any actions yourself.
If asked to participate in this type of scam, report the incident immediately to an attorney or other proper authorities so that something can be done to stop these activities from continuing. We are here to help you understand your rights and options when it comes to defending against home health care fraud.
Don’t Accept Any Kind of Funds or Services in Exchange for Your Actions
At Spodek Law Group, we understand how serious home health care fraud is as an offense; therefore, we’re here to assist with navigating through legal processes involved with such cases. If patients have been approached about giving insurance information without receiving necessary treatments after signing documents given by agencies – they should make reports immediately! It’s important never ever accepting funds or services offered as compensation for silence on matters related directly towards healthcare scams involving others working alongside companies committing these crimes themselves.
