Medicare and Medicaid Fraud Attorney in Illinois
Health care fraud has become a major focus of federal and state governments. Numerous FBI offices throughout the U.S. have pro-actively addressed significant crime problems through coordinated initiatives, task forces, and undercover operations to identify and pursue investigations against the most egregious offenders which may include organized criminal activity and criminal enterprises. Organized criminal activity has been identified in the operation of medical clinics, independent diagnostic testing facilities, durable medical equipment companies, and other health care facilities. The FBI also addresses large scale medical providers, such as hospitals and medical corporations that engage in criminal activity and commit fraud against the government which undermines the credibility of the health care system.
