Insurance or Billing Issues
One issue that doctors are often scrutinized for is their billing practices. If there is alleged fraud involved, whether it is insurance fraud or Medicare/Medicaid fraud, doctors may not only be facing criminal consequences, but the loss of their medical license as well. Also, private insurance panels may strike a doctor from being a participating member, along with losing the right to participate in state insurance programs. Without access to insurance and Medicare/Medicaid reimbursements, doctors may not be able to maintain a practice, if their licenses were not affected.
Exercise Your Rights
Whether you are being investigated for drug matters or are in need of medical ethics violations defense, it is important to be careful what you say. Unfortunately, in attempting to explain your situation, you may unintentionally incriminate yourself. You may want to exercise your right to remain silent and seek counsel from a lawyer at our firm. We can get involved early in the case and help you ensure that you are making the proper statements to the proper authorities.
It may be possible, if you are accused of selling prescriptions or another crime, to get into a diversion program instead of jail and losing your license for good. Your license may be suspended, but one of the conditions of the program may be that you get it back once you have completed the diversion program. Our firm can discuss this more with each client in-depth as it applies to their individual situations.
