(813) 254-7119 Medicaid and Medicare Fraud

Medicaid and Medicare Fraud Lawyer

Many medical facilities receive payment from the government for patients covered by Medicare or Medicaid. This is a large source of income for nursing homes, hospitals and other medical care providers, but some companies want to inflate their profits through fraudulent billing to Medicare or Medicaid. Anyone who has information about Medicaid or Medicare fraud that is occurring may be able to file a Qui Tam lawsuit against the company to seek compensation under the False Claims Act.

Benefit of Reporting Medicaid or Medicare Fraud

The False Claims Act was created to help uncover government fraud and help recover lost revenue. One of the main areas of government fraud occurs in the medical care industry. When companies overbill Medicare or Medicaid for products or services, it can cost the government and taxpayers billions of dollars. The False Claims Act allows individuals to report fraud and sue the companies while being protected as a whistleblower.

As a reward for uncovering fraud against Medicare or Medicaid, those who file a whistleblower, or Qui Tam lawsuit, can receive a percentage of the recovered funds. This can result in 15-30% of the total amount recovered, which has resulted in whistleblowers receiving settlements of millions of dollars. Alerting the government of fraud and providing testimony is valuable in prosecuting these cases. However, the process for filing a lawsuit under the False Claims Act is complex and should be handled by an experienced attorney.

If you have information about Medicare or Medicaid fraud, you may be eligible to file a Qui Tam lawsuit. Our team at Ligori & Sanders Attorneys at Law can advise you on your options.

I just wanted to take a quick time out to say something nice about Mr. Tim Sanders. This man spent an entire year handling my affairs like he was my personal friend. He went to bat for me, and I could tell he cared a great deal about me, my case directly, and he clearly takes a great deal of pride and integrity into his work. You hear a lot of negative about lawyers in this world. Tim, was a tireless worker to get me what I deserved. This guy does his living from the heart. I made a really great choice when I called Tim. My wife and I are so thankful we did.

My experience with Ligori & Sanders was excellent. Their attention to detail and genuine concern for my situation showed that they truly cared about me as a client. The staff was professional, knowledgeable, and kept me informed throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend Ligori & Sanders to anyone needing help and direction after an auto accident.

Alisabeth S.

Ligori & Sanders is an amazing law firm. The employees take time with you to make sure that you truly understand the details of your case and why things are done a certain way to produce the best results. When calling, I always spoke to a person and on the off chance that a message was left, I received a return call promptly. I highly recommend Ligori & Sanders.

Michael J.

Mr. Ligori's firm took the time to explain the legal process and find another attorney in another county. If this law firm can go the extra distance for not even their client, imagine the dedication and expertise if you were their client.

Angela K.

I got into an auto accident and hired Mr. Sanders to represent me a couple weeks later after my insurance company’s lackluster performance to help get me back to normal. I was nervous, this was my first accident with injury and I had never hired a lawyer before. Well let me say, my expectations were met and exceeded, every step of the way. Ligori and Sanders were focused on me and my health. They were polite, prompt, and went to bat for me when the insurance company was not. Not only would I recommend Ligori and Sanders to anyone who needs them, I would insist.
