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 & Ligori Attorneys at Law can advise you on your options.

Alisabeth S.

Ligori & Ligori 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 & Ligori.

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 had an amazing experience with Ligori & Ligori law firm. They handled my case with such professionalism. From the very beginning by sending someone to my home to get details and interview me after my accident, to my case manager Rochelle who was always a call away and explained every step and made sure there was always transparency and kept me updated with everything. I can be very tough and I called way too many times with millions of questions and my calls were never unanswered and my questions and concerns were always answered. Thanks to their amazing team, from the receptionist to John Castro the lawyer on my case who was always personal and relatable. Highly recommended!
