San Antonio Medicare Fraud Defense Attorney
What Is Medicare Fraud?
Medicare is a federal insurance program for eligible Americans age 65 and over. Medicare covers medical care, hospital and nursing home stays, prescription drugs, and home healthcare services.
The government has tremendous resources at its disposal to prosecute Medicare fraud cases, which typically are investigated for months before charges are filed. This is why it is crucial to work with an experienced Medicare fraud attorney in San Antonio the moment you believe you are under investigation.

Examples of Medicare Abuse & Fraud
Medicare fraud charges are generally filed in one of two ways: either against a healthcare provider or against an individual.
Common Medicare abuse or fraud claims against healthcare providers include:
- Submitting bill for services not provided
- Billing for services that are not covered
- Billing patients that do not exist
Common Medicare abuse or fraud claims against individuals include:
- Providing false information on an application
- Failure to disclose income
- Failure to disclose assets
- Selling medicine or equipment paid by Medicare
- Allowing another person to use your Medicare card
In either case, defendants who are found guilty of Medicare fraud face serious consequences, including steep fines and lengthy prison sentences. At the Law Office of Derek W. Emmons, P.C., we have the experience to defend anyone accused of any type of healthcare fraud, including doctors, patients, and claims adjusters.
