Insurance Fraud

Federal Insurance Fraud Defense Lawyer

Insurance fraud at the federal level is rampant.  There are a lot of cases that the feds grab.  Usually, it will have to involve large dollar amounts and sophistication where they need to investigate.  Often doctors are involved, attorneys are involved, and patients are involved. 

So, if you or a loved one is involved in one of these federal insurance fraud cases, you want to get an attorney to jump on it immediately.

They're typically catching these people in these insurance fraud cases at the federal level because somebody gets busted. That person doesn't want to get in trouble, so they start telling the federal government about other people involved in insurance fraud, which usually cracks most cases. 

Another thing is that somebody will submit fraudulent documentation, and one of the federal branches will find out about it, and then they'll start their investigation.

They've got a little fraud department that's like a civil end, and then if they feel that there's criminal activity going on, they will pass it over to the criminal investigators.  They obviously have more authority to execute search warrants and are a lot more aggressive regarding insurance fraud at the federal level.

Protecting Your Rights and Freedom

So, if you see one of these cases coming down the pike and you're a potential target, pick up your phone, and call me today.  We'll immediately start working on it so we can protect your rights, your interests, your reputation, and your freedom.  I have you come in the office and you give me all the details.

A lot of times the feds don't have the full picture and they're still investigating it and they still have you as a target, or maybe they've even arrested you or a loved on regarding some sort of an insurance fraud case and you need an attorney right away.  So, we get on it and find out exactly what's going on.

A lot of times I'm able to get your version of evens across to the federal government, the prosecutors, FBI, Secret Service and Homeland Security and let them know your side of the story so they can really get a full picture of what's going on.

Then we have to make sure that we decide what your strategy is going to be at the beginning.  Is it going to be a situation where we are going to enter into a plea bargain with the government, get a plea agreement, negotiate with them, or is it going to be a situation where you're going to fight your case at a jury trial? 

We're going to investigate and file motions.  We have to decide that right from the beginning because that will drive the federal investigation, at least from the defense end, and we can make the right moves in your insurance fraud case to get you out of the system as quickly as possible.

Insurance fraud occurs often in the United States and as a result the Feds and Insurance companies are heavily monitoring any activity that gives rise to a suspicion of insurance fraud.

How to Get the Best Result in an Insurance Fraud Case?

If you or a loved one is charged with medical insurance fraud, you want to hire a criminal defense attorney immediately.  I've been handling these cases now for 30 years. 

I started working for the district attorney's office, then a superior court judge, and in the 1990s, I became a criminal defense attorney defending people like you. So these medical insurance fraud cases can come up in several different ways. 

Usually, I see them coming up when doctors and their employees receive money from the government – whether it's Medicare, MediCal, or some government program.

They're improperly handling the program, making money, and not abiding by the government's rules, and somehow the government finds out about it. The next thing you know, the person is under arrest facing prison time, a felony on their record, and a host of other problems.

The critical thing is that you want to get an attorney working on it right away because, often, the government doesn't have it right.  The investigators and the police only look at it from one side.  We want to make sure they also look at it from your side.  That's where your attorney comes in.

Meeting with Prosecutors

I've met with agents and prosecutors before with my client to try to give them our side of the story to give them what's called a proffer. 

Other times, that's not a good strategy, and we want to fight the case. But, of course, at different times, we want to negotiate and work out a resolution with a mitigation package and character letters to show them the type of person you are. You don't deserve to go to prison or even have a felony on your record.

They're going to be looking at your criminal record.  They'll be looking at how much money was involved, whether other individuals were involved, and a host of other factors you want to know about.

What I have you do is have you come into the office.  We sit down and go over the whole case.  I encourage you to be honest and give me all the information you have.

I will help you design a plan to attack the case, whether we need to investigate it, file motions, or sit down with the prosecutors. But first, I'll sit down with their supervisor to see what we can do to resolve the case.

I suggest that if you or a loved one is charged with medical insurance fraud, pick up the phone.  Ask for a meeting with Ron Hedding.  Let me put my 30 years of experience to work for you.
