Healthcare Fraud and Abuse

Given the sharp increase in governmental policing of Medicaid and Medicare healthcare providers at the federal, state and even local levels, providers need to be more prepared than ever before for audits, investigations, and even criminal charges.

The O'Connell and Aronowitz Healthcare Fraud and Abuse Practice consists of seven highly experienced attorneys who collectively have approximately 150 years of experience in health and criminal law.  We provide diverse legal services to healthcare providers of all sizes and types, ranging from sole proprietors to clinics to large medical facilities.

Our practice area handles all fraud and abuse issues, both civil and criminal, that can or will impact healthcare providers.

Private payers such as insurance companies have also followed suit and become far more vigilant than they have been in policing their providers. Formed in part to prepare their healthcare clients for the enforcement actions of then-Governor Spitzer and then-Attorney General Cuomo, the Healthcare Fraud and Abuse Unit is now providing high quality legal services to healthcare clients throughout the State and beyond.

The firm's location in New York State's capital, and its proximity to state government offices, ideally lends itself to the Healthcare Fraud and Abuse Unit’s ability to be a rapid response team to react to governmental action of all types.
