South Florida has been the epicenter of Medicare fraud for many years and the U.S. Department of Justice has created a task force to specifically target this type of illegal activity.
Recently, a Florida healthcare executive was convicted on multiple charges of what prosecutors called a $1 billion Medicare fraud scheme. The case is one of the largest Medicare fraud schemes in U.S. History and involved nursing homes and assisted living facilities owned by the wealthy business man, who is now facing a 30-year prison sentence.
Persons reporting Medicare fraud are protected under ‘whistleblower’ laws and may receive an award for reporting these illegal activities. Anyone thinking about reporting Medicare fraud should consult with an experienced attorney prior to doing so.
Fort Lauderdale, Florida attorney Christopher Legg and the Miller Law Group represent whistleblowers throughout the state of Florida.
