What is a Federal Health Care Fraud Crime?

Smartphone and pills scattered on tableFederal Law makes it a federal crime to defraud a health care program or to fraudulently obtain any money or services, according to 18 U.S.C. § 1347. For example, it’s a crime to lie about your income level in order to qualify for medicaid and then receive federal health benefits for which you don’t qualify. Medicare fraud also includes a person knowingly submitting false claims or making false representations to obtain a federal health care payment or reimbursement for which that person is not entitled to.

As a Fort Lauderdale attorney could explain, there are also federal laws prohibiting health care providers from making false claims or statements to the federal government, such as seeking false reimbursement claims.


Health Care Fraud costs the nation 10’s of billions of dollars each year, according to the FBI. Health care fraud can be committed by medical providers, patients and anyone else who intentionally deceives the healthcare system to receive unlawful benefits or payments.

Rossen Law Firm primarily handles health care fraud cases in Broward and Palm Beach counties, but don’t hesitate to reach out if you’ve been charged with any of federal health care crime crimes and are looking for award-winning defense attorneys to fight for you and protect your future.

Medicaid Fraud:

  • There are many types of medicaid fraud, both for medical providers and for beneficiaries. For example, a health provider can commit medicaid fraud by intentionally billing for unnecessary medical services or items. A beneficiary of medicaid could commit fraud by sharing their Medicaid ID with someone else so another person can obtain medical services, as one example.

Medicare Fraud:

  • Medicare fraud includes a person knowingly submitting false claims or making false representations to obtain a federal health care payment or reimbursement that the person is not entitled to.

Prescription Drug Fraud:

  • Often referred to as a “Pill Mill,” a prescription drug fraud crime involves a doctor knowingly and intentionally distributing a controlled substance other than in the usual course of practice and for a legitimate medical purpose. This could mean prescribing something that’s out of their practice area or to someone without a medical need for the prescription.


If convicted, federal health care fraud crimes often come with serious fines and federal prison sentences.

A skilled South Florida Health Care Fraud Defense Attorney is important to making sure that you and your future are protected and that your criminal exposure and potential fines and prison time is minimized.

Here are some penalty options for Health Care Fraud crimes:

Medicaid Fraud:

  • In general, a false medicaid claim can lead to civil penalties of $5,000 to $10,000 PLUS three times the amount of the damages the government sustained due to the crime.

Medicare Fraud:

  • If convicted, you could be looking at 5-10 years in prison per conviction, and at fines as high as $250,000.

Prescription Drug Fraud:

  • Could lead to 1-20 years in prison if convicted and a minimum penalty of $100,000 and up to $5 million in court fines is possible

    I had an unfortunate situation with a family member that lead to my arrest and being charged with DV Battery. This was the first time I had ever been arrested so I was very nervous and afraid of what was going to happen to me. After talking with Adam I decided to retain him and let me tell you this was the BEST decision I could have ever made. Adam made me feel so comfortable and confident that everything will turn out the best in my favor. He is professional, ethical and supportive. He was always available too answer any questions or concerns.Not to mention, his team at the office is awesome they are so friendly and welcoming. Anytime I had a question when I called the office they were able to guide me in the rightdirection. They always were in contact with me with any information or updates regarding my case. Adams team is GREAT!Adam delivered, my case was DISMISSED. So if you want an attorney the is gonna fight for you and get the job done retain the BEST there is Adam Rossen!!!

    Adam Rossen and the team at Rossen Law took great care in handling my case. They are very professional, and get the job done. I was particular relieved to see just how much empathy they showed with me, and how effortless it was to be their client.I literally visited them twice. My initial consultation, and then to pickup the final docs. I have nothing but great things to say about these folks, and I would highly recommend them to anyone. Thanks Guys.

    I had an amazing experience with The Rossen Law Firm. The staff were very professional. Attorney Susan Lawson went above and beyond working on my case. We were thoroughly prepared for trial. Mrs. Lawson reviewed hours of body and dash camera footage multiple times and aggressively performed depositions on witnesses and law enforcement.The final outcome for me was the state dropped my case, due to the great work Susan and the Rossen team performed. I didn’t even need to go to trial.This law firm does not play around. They pay attention to detail and they FIGHT FOR YOU!Thank you Adam, team, and a special thank you to Susan for your amazing work! I really appreciate you.

    My experience with Rossen Law Firm was excellent. From the consultation to the end.. My attorney Susan Lawson gave my son's case all the time and attention that was needed to be successful in court. She was confident during all the court proceedings. My favorite part was when she said we are family, never once my son and I were treated other then that. I very much appreciate the knowledge and support I received through Rossen Law Firm.
