Spodek Law Group is a New York City family-operated law firm who helps clients who are being investigated for Medicaid fraud. They have been in business for over 30 years. Their attorneys are frequently consulted to be involved in press conferences about ongoing cases. One of these instances was when New York Yankee baseball player Alex Rodriguez was suspended for allegedly being in possession of performance-enhancing drugs as part of the Biogenesis scandal. The MLB sued six people, including Rodriguez, after a former employee of the Biogenesis of America clinic accused them of providing the enhancement drugs according to evidence found in the clinic’s records.
Two of Spodek Law Group’s specialties are Provider and Recipient Fraud. This is when medical personnel, such as a physician or dentist, falsely bills Medicaid for their services. Recipient fraud is when a citizen receives Medicaid benefits on false grounds or receives them and is found to not be in need of them. One of the top complaints about the Medicaid offices is that the enrollment administration does not walk their clients through the process. As a result, their clients are often left confused and the enrollment administration does not seem to care whether the information is accurate. As a result, many clients often later receive a request-not a subpoena-letter asking to come down to their office for an investigative interview.
One thing that Spodek claims that the Medicaid HRA doesn’t want their clients to be aware of is that just because a piece of information was inaccurate, doesn’t mean that the client intentionally committed fraud. Spodek believes that clients deserve to be walked through the process every step of the way. Click on NY medicaid fraud attorney for more details.
