Defending Health Care Professionals and Institutions
Health care fraud defense lawyer Solomon L. Wisenberg defends clients accused of, or under investigation for, health care fraud. Their work in this area of practice is informed by Mr. Wisenberg's experience as a federal prosecutor. Mr. Wisenberg led the Financial Institution and Health Care Fraud Unit in the United States Attorney's Office for the Western District of Texas. During that time period he directed the Communicare Home Health Care inquiry, a major four-year investigation of home health care industry fraud.
Experienced Defense Against a Wide Range of Fraud Charges
Health care professionals and health care institutions must comply with extensive and onerous civil regulations. Failure to comply can eventually result in federal prosecution. Solomon L. Wisenberg is available to represent white collar clients in a wide range of circumstances, including those involving allegations of:
- Medicare fraud
- Medicaid fraud
- Billing fraud, including upcoding charges, unbundling and over billing
- Kickback schemes
- Conflicts of interest
Many physicians run afoul of federal law by referring patients to a facility or institution in which they have a financial interest. Such physician self-referral is explicitly banned under federal criminal law.
Prosecutors aggressively pursue health care providers who allegedly get paid for services they do not provide or who lie about the number of patients served or the services rendered. Mr. Wisenberg is available to represent you in these cases as well as those involving alleged abuse of cost-plus contracts.
