Medicare Audit Lawyer
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) and the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) are the government agencies tasked with regulating and overseeing Medicare and Medi-Cal in California. Either agency can conduct an audit and investigation into a healthcare business, triggered by a random draw or intentional selection after suspected wrongdoing or errors. If your healthcare business or you as an individual practitioner are being targeted by an audit or investigation for your use of Medicare or Medi-Cal benefits and programs, you must take the situation seriously, as uncovered errors could lead to severe consequences.
Failing an audit for Medicare or Medi-Cal use could result in:
- Steep fines per violation
- Revocation of healthcare licenses
- Additional investigation or audit
- Professional reputation damage
An investigation or audit that discovers potentially criminal activity or violations can lead to an entirely new list of concerns, including more fines and possible prison time. The best approach to the situation is to know what to anticipate and how to react.
