Responding Carefully to Administrative Investigations
Anytime someone takes on a profession that is overseen by state or federal administrative or regulatory agencies, he or she can face medical board investigations and sanctions by those agencies for alleged violations of applicable laws and regulations.
Of the many types of allegations brought against medical professionals, accusations of Medicare and Medicaid fraud are extremely prevalent. Certain allegations, such as Medicare fraud, can set the stage for later criminal prosecutions.
If you are facing investigation by a state medical board or other administrative or regulatory body, you should enlist the help of a skilled medical defense attorney. The process may seem informal and may not take place in a courtroom, but it can have substantial legal implications.
All types of administrative investigations can have implications for physician licensesuspension, nursing license suspension, hospital peer review and placement in the National Practitioner Data Bank.
Assessing the Consequences of Criminal Charges
If you are a medical practitioner prosecuted for a crime, you may be facing serious career consequences above and beyond the usual consequences of jail time, fines and other criminal penalties.
This is the case whether you have been charged with a crime specifically arising out of your medical practice — such as Medicare fraud — or a seemingly unrelated crime such as DUI that a state medical board might decide reflects on your ability to practice medicine.
Jeffrey Grass is both a medical practitioner advocate and an experienced criminal defense lawyer. He can help you put together a defense strategy that takes specific medical practice consequences into account.
