There has been a strong push in the past couple of years by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to prosecute those who have received welfare benefits when they were not eligible for benefits. This has included the wrongful obtaining of Obamacare Medicaid health insurance. Whether it was a mistake on the paperwork, forgetting to update HHS with recent changes in circumstances, or confusion on whose income to report, we can help you wade through the incredibly paper heavy case files.
Many people who were simply trying to provide for their families may find themselves charged with multiple counts of felony theft, fraud, and perjury. We can help you determine if these counts are actually warranted and whether or not the statute of limitations should apply. In some cases, HHS may know about benefits that should not have been dispersed but have sat on that knowledge for years before turning the case over to law enforcement and the District Attorney. Additionally, we can fight for you to make sure you are treated fairly and receive the best possible plea bargain, if that is the route you choose to go.
