The two statutes most commonly used in Medicare and Medicaid fraud prosecutions include:
Healthcare Fraud Statute (18 U.S.C. § 1347). This statute applies to both fraudulent claims as well as false statements made to obtain funds from Medicare or Medicaid. A conviction could result in up to 10 years in prison and a fine of $500,000 or double the amount of the fraud, whichever is higher.
Anti-Kickback Statute (24 U.S.C. § 1320a–7b). Kickbacks are governed by their own statute. While these penalties are steep, the maximum is lower than the general healthcare fraud statute. A conviction could lead to five years in prison and up to $25,000 in fines.
