Medicaid & Medicare Fraud Crimes Lawyer

Medicaid fraud is something that occurs often in New York, and under ORC 2913.40, the Medicaid provider is the one that knowingly makes a misleading statement to use for reimbursement from the medical assistance program known as Medicaid. The instances can be read below regarding what can count as Medicaid fraud.

Any individual that is paid through the Medicaid program, such as doctors, dentists, hospitals, nursing homes, clinics, pharmacies, counselors, personal care aides and other medical providers can be at risk of this type of fraud. If the provider is the one that intentionally misrepresents what services they’ve rendered at the time of care to obtain more money for it, this is constituted as fraud.
