Healthcare Fraud Defense
Healthcare fraud defense is unique in that it is an ever-changing area of the law. It is estimated that ten cents of every dollar is spent on fraudulent healthcare claims. While this number may be wildly exaggerated, it does suggest that federal authorities and healthcare companies will stop at nothing to prosecute such claims. Congressional Legislation on this white collar crime can change depending upon any new healthcare statutes. For example, the current debate regarding healthcare reform will undoubtedly alter healthcare fraud statutes.
