Health Care Fraud

Los Angeles Health Care Fraud Attorney

About the Rise of Health Care Fraud in the U.S.

Every year, thousands upon thousands of individuals apply for health care of some kind, such as Medicare and Medicaid. In order for an individual to receive these medical benefits, however, they must be eligible and approved. It is an unfortunate fact that many people are denied the health care they want or need for various reasons, and there are also those who simply want more benefits they need for the sake of the extra income. In cases like this, if the individual were to falsify information and defraud a health care benefit program or obtain health care benefits through false information or pretenses, they are could very well face federal crime charges.

Laws Regarding Health Care Fraud

The definition of health care fraud and its penalties are listed in 18 USC § 1347. Defrauding a health care benefit program, or obtaining any money or property from such a program through false or fraudulent pretenses, representations or promises, is punishable by a fine of up to $250,000 and up to 20 years in prison. The prison sentence could be extended as long as life, however, if an individual suffers death as a direct result of such fraudulent behavior.
