Charges Reduced To Misdemeanor & No Jail: Medicaid Fraud

The Scenario: A medical professional defrauded New York State, receiving payments of over $150,000 for services he did not provide. He and a relative were under investigation by the New York State Attorney General’s Medicaid Fraud Control Unit.

The Results: We negotiated the medical professional’s plea down to a misdemeanor and a civil settlement, allowing him to maintain his professional license. We successfully convinced the Attorney General’s office not to prosecute the relative, and both were able to resume their lives.
