Defense For Medicare And Medicaid Violations

Health care is governed by complex federal and state laws. It is imperative that practitioners take care to understand and follow the regulations set forth by Medicare and Medicaid and private insurance companies.

Recoupment actions or allegations of fraud for paid claims can be initiated years after a medical procedure and billing are completed. This is one of the many reasons it is important for health care providers to keep detailed and complete medical records and stay current on billing practices.

At Frances Cullen, P.C. we have 20 years of experience working with health care professionals in a range of fields regarding Medicare and Medicaid violations. We work with professionals in Atlanta and throughout Fulton County and the State of Georgia on cases involving:

  • Health care fraud

Fraud And Criminal Investigations

Legal actions could involve investigations by federal organizations, including the FBI, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA), the Georgia Drugs and Narcotics Agency (GDNA) and the Department of Audits and Accounts (DOAA).
