Home Healthcare and Hospice Fraud Investigations
California healthcare regulators are extremely wary of home health and hospice fraud. Patients under home health or hospice care are extremely vulnerable, often lacking full mental capacity; they are very susceptible to undue pressure and fraud. Home health care and hospice fraud is a grave charge, and the penalties range from thousands of dollars in civil fines to license revocation and criminal prosecution resulting in long-term prison sentences. When developing your healthcare infrastructure, billing practices, oversight procedures, and audit practices, it’s vital to comply with all healthcare regulations and be vigilant of any conduct that could be construed as fraudulent or abusive.
