Largest Ever Criminal Healthcare Fraud Case

 

One way to be sure and get on the radar, and under the skin of the OIG and/or DOJ – allegedly create fraudulent billing of federal health care program dollars.  This means Medicare, Medicaid, CHIPS, TriCare and others.  

The Justice Department unsealed charges in its largest-ever criminal health-care-fraud case, charging three individuals with using a network of doctors, hospitals and health-care providers across South Florida to improperly bill more than $1 billion to Medicaid and Medicare.  Justice Department charges three in $1 billion Medicare fraud scheme

 If proven guilty, these offenses are clearly fraud and will result in felony convictions. That would lead to mandatory exclusions under the OIG authority.  More to follow as this case unfolds.
