Los Angeles Healthcare Fraud Defense Lawyers Announce Recent Results in California Medi-Cal and Medi-Care Criminal Law Cases
Date:12/29/2009

LOS ANGELES, Dec. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- The Criminal Defense Attorneys of Kestenbaum, Eisner & Gorin LLP, a premier Los Angeles Fraud Defense Firm, have successfully represented numerous clients accused of state and federal healthcare fraud offenses involving allegations of Medi-Cal and Medi-Care theft.

The firm specializes in representing medical service providers and healthcare professionals, who are facing state and federal criminal fraud charges, as a result of working in: (1) Pre-Natal Care Facilities; (2) Durable Medical Equipment Sales; (3) Home-Health Care; (4) AIDS Infusion Therapy; (5) Adults Day-Care Facilities. Criminal fraud allegations charged by the government include the practice of fraudulent billing, false cost reports, kickbacks or capping, and the unlawful practice of medicine. The government thoroughly investigates theses cases, sometimes for years, and is tenacious in prosecuting suspects charged with Medi-Care and Medi-Cal fraud.

The firm's recent courtroom successes are listed below. In each instance, the accused was facing multiple years in state or federal custody if convicted:

  • A licensed medical doctor was accused of forging patient files to increase Medi-Cal benefits, causing a $3 million fraud in Los Angeles County. The firm obtained a dismissal of all felony charges after demonstrating intentional government misconduct violated the client's due process. The government is appealing the dismissal.
  • An unlicensed nurse was accused of engaging in the unlawful practice of medicine while using a California nursing license that did not belong to her. The alleged fraud spanned several years, exceeded $250,000, and was charged in federal court. The firm was able to secure a no-jail disposition for the client.
  • A business owner operating an Adult-Day Health Care in Ventura County, with over $5 million Medi-Cal billing, was accused of fraud. The case was dismissed by the magistrate during the preliminary hearing due to insufficient evidence.
  • An insurance agent was accused of collecting premiums from client businesses and then failing to purchase policies for them. Our lawyers obtained a probationary disposition with no jail time, after restitution was made. The DA recommended a jail sentence.
