What is a Federal Medicare Fraud Crime in South Florida?
Medicare fraud is a federal felony with serious penalties. 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. There are many different kinds of medicare fraud, but in the end they all aim to collect money from the federal Medicare program illegitimately.
Under the False Claims Statute [31 U.S.C. § § 3729-3733] it is illegal to submit claims for payment to Medicare or Medicaid that you know or should know are false or fraudulent.
