What actions count as Medicare fraud?

A California doctor was convicted earlier this year for receiving illegal kickbacks for Medicare referrals. According to the United States Department of Justice, evidence showed that he and others referred Medicare patients to a California home health agency in exchange for kickback payments. Medicare paid about $4.1 million toward the claims that resulted from those referrals. The doctor will be sentenced for this crime in January.

Fraud accusations: Can you trust your company's lawyer?

If your company is under investigation for fraud and they have a lawyer on staff, take a step back before sharing any information with them. While a company lawyer could be working to assist you, their primary responsibility is to protect the interests of the company with which they're in contract with.
