In addition to audits by Medicare contractors, providers may receive subpoenas, search warrants and civil and authorized investigative demands issued by entities such as HHS, OIG, FBI and DOJ. In addition, a Grand Jury may also issue a subpoena for a provider to produce documents or answer questions. These types of investigations may be related to both civil and criminal issues raised, and providers should be very careful in how they respond to such inquiries and demands. Experienced health care counsel may be crucial in these instances, particularly when there are criminal issues involved.
