Defense Attorneys In Your Corner Against Health Care Fraud Charges
Among its other forms of notoriety, Florida has developed a reputation as a hotbed of health care fraud. Unfortunately, the actions of some in the state’s medical field have led to increased scrutiny for everyone else. If you are a physician, hospital administrator or other health care professional and facing potential fraud allegations, you have to address the accusations quickly and definitively in an effort to maintain your freedom, your practice and your reputation.
For these reasons and more, you should seek help from an experienced criminal defense attorney like those at Brunvand Wise, P.A. Our skilled, tenacious attorneys understand the complexities of health care law and billing practices, and we are more than ready to defend you in state or federal court.

- Kickbacks (such as taking bribes and corruption)
- Reporting incorrect diagnoses and procedures
- Billing for services that were not rendered
- Misrepresenting service dates, locations or providers
- Billing a noncovered treatment as though it were covered by insurance
- Billing for services that were unnecessary
- Writing false or unnecessary prescriptions for drugs (particularly drugs like opioids with a high black-market value and high rates of abuse)
It is critical to contact us as soon as possible so we can begin investigating your case. You can call us even before charges have been officially filed. We may be able to minimize the attention of the media and prevent allegations or charges from ruining your practice and your professional reputation.
The High Stakes Of Medicare/Medicaid Fraud Charges
Allegations of health care fraud are serious enough in a state case of alleged fraud against a private insurer. But Medicare and Medicaid fraud charges are especially serious because they allege fraud against the federal government. Needless to say, you cannot afford any delay in seeking skilled legal representation. If contacted early enough, our attorneys may be able to mitigate the charges or avoid them altogether by negotiating with prosecutors and law enforcement.
