It is understandable that health care professionals and health care providers are under constant scrutiny for the service and work they provide. Medical care is highly specialized, and any mistake or issue that may arise could lead to serious complications for patients. But at the same time, medical professionals need to be protected from frivolous or otherwise unnecessary claims of malpractice, substandard care, or other violations of the law.
Depending on the scale of the violation and the specifics of each case, the Office of the Inspector General (OIG), the Federal Bureau of Investigation, or even the Medicaid Fraud Control Unit could launch an investigation into an individual or a business in the health care industry.
