Unbundling Medicaid Fraud Defense Attorney
Our healthcare fraud defense lawyers put your best interests first
Health care providers sometimes group different medical procedures together for billing purposes. These “bundled” procedures occasionally receive a special billing rate. Sometimes, mistakes happen. As a result, these bundled medical procedures are separated out and charged the standard, individual rate. This practice is known as unbundling or sometimes referred to as “fragmentation.”
If you or another doctor in your medical practice has been accused of unbundling, it’s important that you understand your legal rights. That’s why our healthcare fraud attorneys at Brewer, Pritchard & Buckley, PC want to meet with you. Our lawyers have years of experience dealing with complex cases, especially when they involve accusations of Medicaid and Medicare fraud.
What is unbundling fraud?
Healthcare fraud allegations involving unbundling can cover a wide range, including:
- Charging for multiple medical tests separately
- Charging for multiple medical procedures separately
- Billing for parts of a single, multi-step medical procedure separately
