Both Medicaid benefit providers and recipients can be investigated for Medicaid fraud. Those getting Medicaid benefits can face fraud charges for letting someone else use their card, putting false information on an application or forging prescriptions. Those providing Medicaid services can be investigated for fraud if they file false claims about services rendered, claims about fake car accidents or claims for services that weren't given. If you receive a letter from an investigative agency asking you to come to their office for an ìinterviewî and to bring along certain documentation, you should seek legal advice from a New York Medicaid fraud lawyer immediately before discussing anything with the investigators. You need to make sure your rights are protected and you have a good shot at getting charges dropped or lessened with Joseph Potashnik & Associates on your side.
