Demystifying Medicare And Medicaid
Medicare is an entitlement program — an individual is entitled to it because it was paid for through Social Security taxes. Medicaid, on the other hand, is a federal program for low-income, financially needy people, set up by the federal government and administered differently in each state.
People may qualify and receive coverage from both Medicare and Medicaid, but there are separate eligibility requirements for each program.
Sher Garner Cahill Richter Klein & Hilbert, L.L.C., represents clients in cases involving:
- Medicare/Medicaid reimbursement. We have successfully litigated Medicare and Medicaid reimbursement appeals before various administrative boards and have handled reimbursement matters at the appellate level. Our goal is to obtain payment for costs and services to which our clients are entitled.
- Medicare/Medicaid fraud. We represent health care providers, hospitals, nursing homes, group practices, individual doctors, ambulance companies, durable medical equipment suppliers and clinical laboratories that have been charged with Medicare or Medicaid fraud.
