Mississippi Healthcare Fraud Attorney
What is health care fraud?
John M Colette & Associates is one of the few firms who has actually won a complex Healthcare/Medicare Fraud case in Federal Court, with a jury verdict of Not-Guilty.
Health care fraud, addressed by both state and federal laws, is a crime in which someone purposefully provides false information when filing a health care claim in an effort to make a profit or to gain some type of benefit. Health care fraud can be committed by health care providers, patients, and health insurers as well.
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 made healthcare fraud a federal offense, punishable by up to 10 years in prison. If you are the target of a health care fraud investigation or have been charged, you need an experienced criminal defense lawyer in your corner.
John M. Colette & Associates has more than 30 years of experience handling criminal cases in Mississippi and throughout the Southeastern United States.
