Federal Health Care Fraud refers to a range of charges that include: insurance fraud, drug fraud, and medical fraud. In most cases the FBI, U.S. Postal Service, or the Office of the Inspector General handle investigations, though many start with internal investigations or accounting audits by third parties. Medicare, Medicaid and private insurance companies may be considered victims and help to provide evidence against you.
