Being sued for Medicaid fraud is a very serious legal matter. Our Medicaid fraud defense lawyers at Brewer, Pritchard & Buckley, PC know because we have handled these healthcare fraud cases in Texas and throughout the country.
Often, you only have a limited amount of time to legally respond to a Medicaid fraud lawsuit. That’s why some doctors may feel compelled to respond right away. It is important to understand that anything you say or write in response could potentially jeopardize the outcome of your case.
That’s why we want to meet with you as soon as possible. Our attorneys know how to build strong legal cases in response to allegations of Medicaid and Medicare fraud. We know what questions to ask, what information to look for and how to compile all the facts into the strongest possible legal case. That’s because we’re familiar with many of the most common examples of Medicaid fraud.
What steps should I take if I’m being sued for Medicaid fraud?
Every Medicaid fraud case is different, but, in general, if you or your medical practice is being sued for Medicaid fraud, we strongly advise you to take the following steps:
- Do not respond directly to the law firm suing your medical practice.
- Do not respond to the person who filed the lawsuit against you or your medical practice.
- Do not destroy any medical records related to this case.
- Contact our law firm immediately and make an appointment with one of our attorneys.
Our law firm can deal directly with the other law firm taking legal action against you. We know how to formally respond to their lawsuit without jeopardizing the outcome of your case. We can also work with you to have the lawsuit dismissed so you do not have to go to trial. If your case does go to court, we will be ready and will mount the strongest possible legal defense for you and your medical practice.
