Unnecessary Medical Services Defense Attorney
Our Medicaid fraud defense lawyers can fearlessly fight for your rights
One of the most common – and most complex – types of healthcare fraud cases we deal with at our law firm involves medical services described by some people as unnecessary. Patients are often the ones who make these complaints and take legal action. It might be tempting to dismiss these legal cases as frivolous, but it’s critical that you take the allegations seriously right from the start.
That’s where we come in. Our healthcare fraud defense lawyers know what to do because the attorneys at Brewer & Pritchard, P.C. have been handling complex legal cases for decades. As a result, we know the law and understand how the legal system works, especially when it comes to Medicaid and Medicare fraud cases.
What are unnecessary medical services?
Unnecessary medical services can cover a wide range. Some common examples of Medicaid fraud include:
- Unnecessary medical tests
- Unnecessary medical procedures
- Unnecessary surgical operations
In hindsight, it’s easy for some patients or inspectors to claim that a medical procedure or test that you performed was unnecessary. As you well know, many so-called unnecessary medical procedures may have seemed necessary at the time. If you had not performed that medical test or operation, you could instead be facing legal action for failing to act in a timely and ethical manner. That’s why it’s critical that you have a lawyer on your side who knows how to find the evidence you need to build the strongest possible legal case.
Put your trust in healthcare fraud defense lawyers who can defend your rights
The stakes are high in legal cases involving unnecessary medical services. If a court of law rules that you performed unnecessary medical services, you could be fined or face other disciplinary action, including even perhaps jail time for these infractions.
