Important Steps To Take

If you face Medicaid fraud investigations, the following steps can safeguard your rights and mount a robust defense against the allegations:

1. Remain Silent

Upon learning about the investigation or if investigators contact you, exercise your right to remain silent.

Anything you say can be used against you in court, so do not discuss the matter with anyone, including investigators, without the presence of your lawyer.

2. Contact An Attorney Immediately

Without delay, seek legal representation from an experienced attorney specializing in Medicaid fraud cases.

Your lawyer will protect your rights, communicate with investigators and other parties involved, provide legal counsel and navigate the intricacies of the legal system on your behalf.

3. Gather Documentation

While working closely with your attorney, gather all relevant documents related to your Medicaid claims and transactions. It may include evidence supporting your defense, such as:

  • Medical records
  • Billing statements
  • Financial records

Organizing this information will help your lawyer build a strong case in your favor.

4. Cooperate Wisely

While cooperating with legal proceedings is essential, it’s equally important to do so under the guidance of an attorney.

Provide truthful and accurate information when required, but refrain from volunteering unnecessary details or making statements that could be misconstrued.
