Tricare fraud is a serious federal offense, with penalties ranging from civil monetary damages to years of incarceration. The federal government is aggressively prosecuting Tricare fraud cases, and if you have been accused of Tricare fraud, there is no time to waste. You need to hire an attorney to develop and execute an effective defense strategy right away. However, due to the complexity of Tricare fraud matters, you don’t want to hire just any lawyer. You need someone with particular experience in handling your type of case.
When it comes to choosing a lawyer to defend you in a Tricare investigation, two qualities are essential: First, the lawyer must have an intimate understanding of federal healthcare law, including laws like the False Claims Act, the Stark Law, and the laws governing the Tricare program. Second, the lawyer whom you choose should have proven experience with federal government investigations.
