One issue that has become a major problem within the state of California is Medi-Cal fraud. The reason that this has become a hot topic is that it was discovered in recent years that individuals were taking advantage of the money that was available by the state for those unable to afford health insurance by making false declarations in order to make themselves eligible for the health insurance that is paid for by the state. This has also happened for people who want to use food stamps to their advantage as well.
One is guilty of Medi-Cal fraud within the state of California if they have knowingly reported misleading and/or false information on their income summary in order to demonstrate that they have a lower amount of income than they actually do. If they then accept the health insurance, they are guilty of Medi-Cal fraud because had they not misrepresented their income, they would have been able to purchase health insurance with their earnings and not be billing the state for their health care expenses. MediCal fraud charges are not something to be taken lightly because they can lead to a prison sentence of up to five years and also fines up to $50,000.
If you have been charged with Medi-Cal fraud, it is imperative that you meet with an attorney because there are several potential defenses available to you to have your charges dropped. For example, if you can successfully show that you did not knowingly act with the intention to commit fraud or that there is insufficient evidence to support the Medi-Cal fraud charge, then you can possibly reduce your sentence/fines or even have your charges completely dropped.
