Story shows how fraud allegations can threaten a medical license

A medical professional's duty goes beyond providing health care, therapy or treatments. These individuals are expected to maintain professionalism in all situations. Most people would agree that engaging in health care fraud is a clear example of nonprofessional behavior. Such actions not only threaten careers, they can also defy even the best efforts to establish a professional license defense.

To sum it up succinctly, people strongly dislike being cheated, tricked or taken advantage of, which is why the public's response to accusations of medical or insurance fraud is so strong. One California doctor is just learning the true ramifications of his involvement in fraudulent activities. He is the fourth in a string of physicians that have faced license-related disciplinary actions following a conviction on insurance fraud.

According to reports, this doctor said in a plea agreement that he conspired with the other three defendants to "aid and abet" a fifth physician in the unlawful practice of medicine. The fraud comes into play because the four doctors are accused of improperly billing for treatments provided by the fifth doctor, an aesthetician, in the case.

Regardless of the allegations, the conviction and the license probation, there are many reasons this doctor can expect a good outcome. At this time, he still holds his medical license and that is a good thing. As long as he complies with the terms of his license probation, he has an excellent chance of practicing in his field of medicine once more.

Advising compromised licensees and making recommendations based on the facts of the case are just two ways a professional license defense attorney can help professionals overcome their hardships and save their careers.
