Medicare estimates that health insurance fraud costs the government a whopping $179 billion per year.
Insurance fraud is a felony which is punishable by five to seven years in prison or more. This means that if you are convicted of insurance fraud, you will likely spend time in jail or prison, you will have to pay fines, and it is almost guaranteed that you will be sued by the insurance company or individuals involved in the case.
If you are suing a convicted criminal for damages resulting from insurance fraud, you should hire a civil lawyer or attorney. If the person was not convicted and you want to sue for damages, you should still hire a civil lawyer or attorney.
If you have been accused of insurance fraud, whether you are guilty or not, you should always hire criminal lawyer or attorney. Criminal lawyers and attorneys represent individuals who have been charged with crimes by arguing their cases in courts of law. A criminal lawyer or attorney will typically have a private practice concentrating on criminal law.
