Oakland County Healthcare Fraud, Licensing and Discipline - Medicare and Medicaid Fraud Attorney

By law, medical, dental, pharmacy and other health professional boards are required to investigate every complaint filed against a professional, as well as every criminal conviction no matter how minor. Apart from standard of care and negligence investigations, one of the most common subjects of investigation for medical doctors and other healthcare providers is substance abuse. Another very common area includes complaints of healthcare fraud, including Medicare and private insurance over-billings or over-utilization.

James W. Burdick of Burdick Law, P.C. has decades of experience in defending healthcare professionals in criminal, licensing and disciplinary matters. In cases involving allegations of healthcare fraud, investigators often mistake an honest mistake in using billing codes for a pattern of fraud. In defending doctors, James W. Burdick presents exculpatory evidence and explains how mistaken assumptions on the part of investigators could have resulted in a criminal investigation against a doctor.

Healthcare Fraud Attorney

With tightening budgets comes ever more intrusive regulatory oversight and investigations. The pursuit of allegations of healthcare fraud and abuse has also tightened, and claims of violations are widespread. Almost any health practitioner engages in treatment and billing activities which could be challenged by regulators, no matter how hard the doctor works to be honest, if an over-eager investigator puts the right "spin" on the conduct. Too often it becomes a question of who is looking and how aggressive they are, not whether a doctor is actually trying to cheat the system. State and federal government payors, as well as private healthcare payors, have grown far more aggressive in their pursuit of healthcare providers who are seen to have "crossed the line" in treatment decisions and billings; while some practitioners may be cutting corners, most are entirely honest. As healthcare payors push harder to "discover" improprieties, healthcare fraud attorneys also need to become far more aggressive than most are in defense of their clients. At Burdick Law, P.C., attorney James W. Burdick knows the difference between a simple billing error and healthcare fraud. He was a Member of the Michigan Board of Medicine for nearly a decade, and understands the system inside and out.
