Health Care Fraud Investigation and Litigation Support Services

Our fraud investigation and litigation support clients include state and federal entities ranging from state program integrity/office of inspector general units (OIG), the FBI, and Medicaid fraud control units (MFCUs) to the United States Department of Justice (DOJ). We completely understand the confidential nature of governmental investigations and have numerous individuals on our team with security clearances. Our litigation support team includes health care staff who can provide both consulting and expert witness services as needed.

Myers and Stauffer specializes in bringing the case together. We examine the case file and assist in developing a strategy to prepare the investigative team for trial; and, if necessary, settlement options relating to the case. We often participate in witness interviews, provide support for financial calculations, explain the case to the entity being investigated, assist in settlement negotiations, and review settlement agreements.
