Insurance Fraud Cases Are Taken Seriously

While parties accused of insurance fraud are aware that they are facing serious charges with intense repercussions, they are often surprised to learn just how seriously the government takes these cases. The District Attorney’s Office has its own insurance fraud division dedicated specifically to handling these cases, making it all the more important to choose an attorney who is specifically focused on insurance fraud and white collar crimes.

Many Variations of Insurance Fraud

Insurance fraud comes in many variations. The most common is when someone allegedly files some type of false claim. For example, a health care provider may allegedly double or triple charge an insurance company for services rendered, or simply charge the insurance company for services that were never provided. Similarly, individuals may be accused of filing auto insurance or workers’ compensation claims for injuries that were exaggerated or nonexistent.

We also handle cases involving insurance agents accused of writing fake policies in order to increase their commissions, as well as other unique types of insurance fraud.

PROTECT YOURSELF AND YOUR FAMILY

All questions can be answered by retaining an experienced federal criminal defense lawyer.

San Diego Medicare Fraud Attorney

Health care fraud charges tend to involve allegations of false claims. For example, a health care provider may be accused of billing an insurance company for X-rays or other procedures not actually provided to the patient. Accusations may also involve overbilling for services that were provided. The complexity of a health care fraud case is less dependent on the type of fraud committed than on how widespread the fraudulent activity is. Do accusations involve a single doctor repeatedly overbilling or do they involve many doctors in the same health care facility charging insurers for services not provided?

Regardless of how complex an insurance fraud case may seem, the California Law Offices of John D. Kirby, A.P.C., is prepared to defend the accused. We encourage health care professionals and facilities to contact us as soon as they discover they are under scrutiny. With more than 20 years of experience, we know that steps can be taken during the investigation phase to mitigate charges or prevent them from being filed altogether.

Fraud Cases Involving Private Insurers or Medicare

While a significant number of the health care fraud cases are Medicare fraud cases, we also handle many cases involving allegations of fraud against private health care insurance companies, including Blue Cross and Blue Shield.

How Strong Is Their Evidence?

We begin every case by reviewing the evidence against our client. Was it obtained by using a search warrant? Was the search warrant valid? While there are questions that will be asked in every case, our approach is fluid and based on the tactics the criminal prosecutors are using. When you choose our law firm, your case will be handled by attorney John D. Kirby, a former federal criminal prosecutor who understands the opposition’s tactics and how to counter them.
