Defending Physicians and Other Medical Professionals and Facilities
As health care costs continue to rise, government agencies are taking greater efforts to root out fraud in Medicaid and Medicare billing. Innocent medical professionals can fall victim to overzealous law enforcement agents and prosecutors.
