What is Medicaid?
Medicaid Insurance is a health insurance program tailored and sponsored by the State government of New York to assist individuals and families going through a tough time and who meet particular income and asset requirements. Medicare Fraud is the term used to refer to fraudulent activities orchestrated to obtain benefits from the program. Medicare fraud applies to both providers and applicants. While provider fraud applies to Medicaid providers like hospitals and dentists fraudulently send the program invoices for services rendered, applicant fraud applies to individuals receive Medicaid benefits through fraud.
Are You Being Investigated?
If and when you fall under investigations, you might not be aware. Remember that agents who handle applications do not necessarily conduct all due diligence to prevent accidental or intentional fraud. To cover up, they might not inform you when you are being investigated. They will only ask around and even lead you into giving information that might likely incriminate you. It is not always the case, but law firms that have been offering legal services to Medicaid Fraud Defendants confirm that they have indeed encountered such cases.
