Facing Insurance Fraud Allegations as a Medical Professional: Safeguarding Your License

Posted by Joseph D. Lento | Aug 09, 2023 | 0 Comments

If you're a healthcare practitioner, your medical license is nearly as critical to your day-to-day as your driver's license. It's the way you practice your career (and the way you pay your bills!).

This makes serious allegations, such as insurance fraud accusations, a very big deal. It's natural to worry — or even to be scared. You can't lose your license. That would affect your entire future!

At the Lento Law Firm, we agree. Here, we'll provide some practical insights into insurance fraud allegations, their impact on your ability to practice medicine, and the steps you can take as a healthcare provider to protect your license, reputation, and career.

How Serious Are Insurance Fraud Accusations?

Insurance fraud within the healthcare system refers to the intentional misrepresentation of patient information to insurance companies. The goal of insurance fraud is often to obtain unauthorized benefits or larger payments for medical services.

Insurance companies do not take kindly to this kind of deception.

Neither does the medical field at large.

If you are facing these accusations, that's calling into question your integrity as a professional and your ability to provide helpful, non-biased care to your patients.

The specific consequences you may face will vary, but your state's licensing board could initiate disciplinary actions against your license. These actions may include fines, an interim suspension, or even a license revocation.

Here's How to Protect Your Medical License

Your first step in mitigating the damage associated with insurance fraud allegations is this:

Before you is a complex legal process. To protect your rights, you are going to need deep knowledge of the law in your state, your licensing board's regulations, and how others in your shoes have protected their careers. We can help you work diligently to:

  • Assess the strength of the accusation against you
  • Develop an effective defense strategy specific to your circumstances
  • Protect your rights throughout your licensing board's disciplinary processes
  • Gather evidence to support your defense strategy
  • Negotiate with your state's regulatory agencies (e.g., the medical boards) to discover options for resolution other than license revocation

Throughout the entire process, the experienced team at the Lento Law Firm can provide regular updates, personalized support, and consistent guidance so you can feel confident about your future.
