Healthcare crimes are usually charged in Federal court because they typically involve reimbursements from Federal healthcare benefit programs or the distribution of federally regulated controlled substances. Texas charges can be brought when State-funded programs such as Medicaid are involved or when Texas drug laws are allegedly violated. If you are under investigation for a Federal or Texas Healthcare crime or have already been charged, you need a skilled and aggressive criminal defense attorney to immediately protect your rights and begin preparing a defense.
Common examples of Healthcare crimes include:
Medicare / Medicaid Fraud
Anti-Kickback (AKS) or Stark Violations
Wire Fraud, Mail Fraud, and False Claims Act
Diversion of Controlled Substances (“Pill Mill” cases)
