Are you a physician, nurse, acupuncturist, laboratory director or other health care professional facing an administrative action affecting your medical business or your professional license? Are you a medical professional under investigation by a state or federal agency for health care fraud? Have you been charged with Medi-Cal, Medicare or insurance fraud by your local prosecutor, the California Attorney General or the United States Attorney?
You need expert advice from a lawyer who has experience with the governmental agencies impacting your practice. John Dratz, Jr. has the background, experience, contacts, sound judgment, and aggressiveness to help you.
Simply stated, any provider facing a Medi-Cal, Medicare or private insurance fraud investigation or criminal prosecution needs a lawyer that is knowledgeable and experienced in this unique area. Health care fraud is a complex field with its own vocabulary and specialized body of law. It is not as simple as challenging a sobriety test or determining whether someone had permission to take a car. The law enforcement officers investigating health care fraud are specifically trained in the complexities of the Medicaid rules and regulations. My training and experience can provide you the defense you need.
Likewise, if your professional license is threatened by your licensing agency or your application for a professional license is denied you need a lawyer who is highly knowledgeable in the area of administrative law. I have the experience and knowledge to help you with most federal and state licensing agencies.
