Experienced And Aggressive Defense Against Healthcare Fraud Charges
With the increased focus on the budget deficit and healthcare, the government is taking a much harder look at money paid out on behalf of Medicare and Medicaid recipients. The federal government has created a multi-agency healthcare fraud task force in select areas across the country. Detroit is one of those areas.
At the Law Office of John Freeman, we defend healthcare providers, clinics, durable medical equipment (DME) companies, personal care agencies, and others who provide or bill for medical services. You need skilled, experienced and aggressive legal help if you have been charged with healthcare fraud:
- Fraudulent billing for services not rendered or equipment not provided
- Fraudulently prescribing drugs or durable medical equipment that is not needed or not provided
- Fraudulent cost reports
You may also be facing criminal charges associated with healthcare fraud, such as:
- Mail fraud and wire fraud
- Insurance fraud
- Prescription fraud
- Misuse of Social Security numbers

Medicare and Medicaid Insurance Fraud Lawyer in Michigan
John Freeman has handled complex white-collar crime cases like health insurance fraud, first as a prosecutor and now as a criminal defense attorney. As a prosecutor he worked with federal agencies such as the FBI and the IRS to build a case, so he understands how to evaluate the government’s evidence and how to develop effective counter-strategies. He now puts that knowledge to use defending people accused of Medicare and Medicaid insurance fraud.
To help him in the assessment of healthcare fraud cases, which often include complex financial transactions, Mr. Freeman can draw upon a network of forensic accountants, computer experts and other professionals. These specialists can be critical to your defense and can provide persuasive testimony in court.
Hesitation Can Harm Your Defense
Often, healthcare fraud cases begin as a civil matter or a whistleblower complaint from a disgruntled employee, an unhappy patient, or a vindictive family member. An investigation may begin with a Medicare or Medicaid audit or a grand jury may be called and you may be subpoenaed to appear.
If you believe you are under investigation or have been asked to appear before a grand jury or law enforcement, talk to a criminal defense lawyer as soon as possible. The Law Office of John Freeman can evaluate your case and advise you on your best legal defense options.
