If you suspect you are being investigated of any act under federal or state law related to Medicaid in the Clearwater area, Flint Law has the experience and skills you want in a Medicaid fraud lawyer.

The Medicaid program is often taken advantage of because they, essentially, use the honor system for billing. These are some of the most common forms of deception or misrepresentation that may be grounds for hiring an attorney:

  • Billing for services or supplies that were never provided
  • Being billed twice for the same service or supply
  • Billing for a higher paying services rather than the service that was provided
  • Continuous billing after services were needed
  • Billing for “non-covered” services as “covered” services
  • Ordering a patient to do unnecessary testing
