MICHIGAN HEALTH CARE FRAUD DEFENSE LAWYERS
The business of running a medical practice can seem even more complicated than the actual practice of medicine. The myriad forms and codes that must be completed to receive reimbursement from Medicaid, Medicare or private insurance (such as Blue Cross Blue Shield), can overwhelm support staff and lead to errors. Those errors can lead to charges or investigations, including undercover agents posing as patients to document alleged fraud for unnecessary procedures or for billing procedures that weren’t performed. Billing code errors and miscommunications can lead to serious criminal charges.
In their zeal to uncover fraud, investigators can ensnare innocent people and ruin professional careers. Jeffrey Buehner is a former prosecutor with over 23 years of white-collar criminal defense experience. He has successfully circumvented health care fraud investigations and defended physicians and support staff charged with Medicare, Medicaid and prescription fraud.

Healthcare Fraud Investigations
While it is not always possible, it is best to have an attorney involved during the investigative stage. It is not unusual for investigators to approach a target during or after their investigation, before charges are issued. Even if you may simply suspect that some type of investigation is ongoing, you’ll want to have an attorney to provide you with advice. Having an experienced health care fraud defense attorney to help you navigate the investigative process may help you to avoid criminal charges. Providing a valid basis for prescribing controlled substances such as Oxycontin or Xanax or explaining discrepancies in billing codes or services provided, can make the difference between criminal charges and the closing of an investigation. You don’t, however, want to do the explaining on your own. You have a Fifth Amendment privilege against self-incrimination – use it. Let the attorneys at Jeffrey Buehner, PLLC do the talking for you.
