Health Care Fraud Defense In Dallas
Health care fraud is a white collar crime that carries significant criminal penalties such as large fines and incarceration in addition to the lasting damage a conviction can have on your record and your reputation. Charges often stem from accusations of defrauding government entities such as Medicare or Medicaid, placing the accused squarely in the crosshairs of federal prosecutors who have resources to spare in pursuing a conviction.

Medicare Fraud: Bad PR And Catastrophic Consequences
When charged with fraud against Medicare or Medicaid – the two most prominent government health care programs – you are essentially being charged with defrauding taxpayers by misusing funds that were meant to help the elderly and the poor. The criminal consequences can involve prison time and seven-figure fines. However, the public relations hit of kicking our most vulnerable while they are down could haunt your personal and professional reputation long after you have served your time and paid your fines. It is critical to have an attorney looking out for you as soon as possible. Early intervention could result in charges never being filed and spare you from the collateral consequences of Medicare fraud or Medicaid fraud charges.
