Tricare Fraud is a serious offense. Penalties range from civil monetary damages to years of incarceration in federal prison. The government is aggressively prosecuting Tricare Fraud cases and no time should be wasted to develop a smart and effective defense strategy for those that find themselves accuses of federal healthcare fraud. However, the complexity of Tricare Fraud investigations should dis-encourage you to hire just any lawyer. Extra skillset and experience are required.
