Several of or lawyers previously held the role of leading prosecutor for the DEA or FBI. Now in private practice with us, they share those insights with our clients.
  • Whistleblower Defense Lawyers. More and more, employees and competitors report physicians and healthcare businesses to Medicare authorities. Drawn by a provision of the federal False Claims Act promising financial rewards for reporting fraud, so-called qui tam or whistleblower complaints have mushroomed over East Texas. If your practice is subject to a False Claims Act allegation, accused of Stark Law or Anti-Kickback violations, keep in mind the investigation may be a civil or criminal one. The attorneys at Oberheiden, P.C. are available to assist by offering the knowledge gained when in charge of civil affirmative actions and whistleblower cases at the U.S. Attorney’s Office.
  • Medicare Fraud & Kickbacks. The majority of civil and criminal investigations in the East Texas medical community are alleged Medicare fraud and illegal kickbacks. Receiving an OIG or grand jury subpoena, an arrest or search warrant, or if federal agents attempt to interview you, it is upsetting. In these instances, passive or under skilled counsel are not your best option. Charges under 18 U.S.C. 1347 alleging billing fraud, fraud for services never provided, billing of medically unneeded procedures and similar allegations must be answered with an aggressive defense.

  • OIG Subpoena & Grand Jury Subpoena. Many fraud cases begin by receiving an OIG subpoena or a grand jury subpoena. You may think providing records and handing over patient files is not a big deal. You may want to think again. Government subpoenas are often the prosecutor’s way of obtaining evidence. That evidence has the potential to end at a federal felony charge. If your practice receives a subpoena, time is of the essence. Our work at the DOJ showed us how unseasoned lawyers or careless responses to a government request can lead to criminal charges. Contact our former Assistant United States Attorneys to get first-hand advice about the subpoena process. Plus, the correct way to deal with a government subpoena. The information can help you avoid being charged with a crime or ending up with millions in penalties.

Important Questions Regarding Healthcare Fraud Investigations in East Texas

Q: What Is the Eastern District of Texas?

The American justice system is divided into state and federal laws, state and federal courts, and state and federal prosecutions. The state of Texas and its state courts adjudicate all state offenses. The Department of Justice investigates and prosecutes violations of federal law. The U.S. is divided into 95 federal districts. Texas has 4 districts; Northern, Southern, Western, and Eastern. Parts of the Eastern District of Texas feature federal courthouses and U.S. Attorney’s Offices in Tyler, Beaumont, Sherman, Marshall, Texarkana, and Lufkin.

Q: Am I Required to Be Interviewed by Law Enforcement?

Absolutely not! You should never speak to law enforcement without your lawyer present. Even if you consider yourself innocent, the reality is that someone may have accused you or put you in a bad light. Without your knowledge, agents may try to get incriminating information from you. In the combined practice of 70+ years of handling federal investigations, we have never seen an improved outcome when a client sat down with police or agents in the absence of a lawyer.

Q: Can I Self-Disclose My Medicare Billing Problems?

Oberheiden, P.C. has helped a number of clients through the CMS self-disclosure process. In all cases, we accomplished our goals. We preempted a government investigation, avoided criminal charges, and maintained our client’s professional license. However, the self-disclosure process is a double-edged sword. In the majority of cases, we advised our clients not to disclose errors because the reporting would have been untimely, excessive, or unsound. You should thoroughly consult with experienced attorneys before disclosing any Medicare issues. The risk of attracting government attention and inviting yourself to a criminal audit is real.

Q: What Is Your Experience in Medicare Fraud or Commercial Insurance Fraud Cases?

Helping physicians, medical providers, and healthcare businesses is all we do. Our entire firm is dedicated to protecting your license, livelihood, and your freedom. We have successfully resolved fraud investigations for providers of all kinds across the country. Doctors hire us, despite the distance, because they know they can rely on our skills and our professional advice.
