Minnesota Medical Device Fraud Attorney

Medical Device Fraud

Any US citizen who is aware of fraud and illegality in Medicare and Medicaid programs involving illegal billing for medical devices can disclose that information to the courts under federal or state whistleblower laws, and be entitled to a percentage of the money recovered as determined by the courts. Some of the typical types of medical device fraud are:

  • Non-approved use and marketing: If a physician or clinic brings to market a medical device or employs it in a non-approved application (by the FDA), that constitutes fraud.
  • Kickbacks: Professionals in the medical field who establish financial relationships with medical device providers that involve payment for use of that manufacturer’s product, can be creating an illegal kickback arrangement.
  • Nonfunctioning medical devices: Sellers of medical devices that are defective and who knew or should have known of such defects, can be liable for fraud.
  • Production and Sale of medical devices not adhering to agreed specifications: If producers or marketers of medical devices bring those devices to market with defects in order to improve profits, that is a fraudulent act.

The lawyers at Tarshish Cody PLC will represent anyone who discloses instances of fraud and illegality relating to medical devices, and discuss possible awards available through federal or state whistleblower and false claims laws.
