New York Insurance Fraud Attorney
When an HMO accuses a physician with overcharging for services, the situation can become dangerous for the doctor. At worst, the HMO can report the doctor to the Department of Health with the charge of fraudulent billing. If that happens, the doctor may have to repay a good deal of money to the HMO. Furthermore, there may be an OPMC investigation. The doctor should consider negotiating a settlement with the HMO to put the matter to rest.
If you are going to bill an HMO, as a medical provider in private practice, it is in your best interests to have your staff retain a billing firm to guide your practice through proper billing. Not only will this information keep you out of a billing issue with the HMO, but you will also learn how to legally maximize your billing to capture the highest amount permitted.
