With an increasing emphasis on reducing health care costs nationwide and a series of initiatives to encourage whistleblower activity, it is expected that the number of investigations of alleged health care fraud will increase. Physicians, nurses, and other health care professionals, in addition to employees and executives of companies in the health industry, may find themselves receiving grand jury subpoenas. Even as a witness in an investigation, individuals have possible criminal exposure if the government investigators believe them to be untruthful or less than forthcoming. Levin & Curlett can assist those individuals in responding to grand jury subpoenas and providing information to law enforcement authorities via proffer or testimony. When necessary, Levin & Curlett can also aggressively represent individual defendants and companies in criminal prosecutions relating to the health care industry.
