Medicare/Medicaid Fraud

Defending Against Medicare And Medicaid Fraud Charges In Chicago

As with any type of industry, billing mistakes happen. The health care industry is no exception to this. However, some situations are viewed by the federal government as Medicaid or Medicare fraud. If the wrong code is billed for, this can be viewed as fraudulent medical billing. If you are under investigation for health care fraud or have already been charged, you need to obtain skilled and competent criminal defense representation as soon as possible.

  • False billing

  • Billing for services not rendered
  • Billing for unnecessary tests and procedures
  • Billing for unnecessary medical equipment
  • Double-billing (i.e., billing for Medicaid/Medicare and also private insurance)
  • Billing for more time than provided
  • Providing services by an unlicensed professional but billing as if a licensed professional rendered services
  • Kickbacks and referrals
  • Falsifying medical records/documents

Easy to work with – and hard to work against. A veteran of many high profile federal and state cases, clients are often surprised by how approachable they find Damon. But having seen him at trial dozens of times over the years, I can attest to his powerful motions practice, ability to conduct relentless cross-examinations, and give moving openings/closings. With personal and professional qualities that make him easy to work with – and hard to work against – anyone in need of a criminal defense attorney would be in great hands with Damon Cheronis.

Andy B. Chicago, IL

A lawyer who truly cares and listens to his clients. Damon, is a lawyer who truly cares and listens to his clients. He was totally prepared for the case so he was never surprised by the prosecutions evidence or arguments. He and was able to put the prosecutors in a defensive mode. He was by far the best attorney in the court room. I would highly recommend him to everyone.

More than just and attorney! Very professional, always pays attention to detail and hungry to fight for his clients. The price I paid does come close to how hard he works. More than just and attorney! I definitely would recommend Damon to anyone I knew who needed a good attorney.
