The Law Office of Jeffrey J. Downey: Navigating Justice in Medical Malpractice Cases and Exposing Fraud in our system

By: Get News
The Law Office of Jeffrey J. Downey is devoted to pursuing justice in medical malpractice, securing compensation, and setting legal precedents.

The Law Office of Jeffrey J. Downey is dedicated to vigorously pursuing justice in medical malpractice cases, tirelessly working to secure maximum compensation for clients. With a commitment to excellence, the firm not only seeks redress for individual clients but also strives to set essential legal precedents that can positively impact other plaintiffs.

In addition to medical malpractice, Mr. Downey handles healthcare fraud cases.   Sometimes the same patients who are neglected are also overbilled, explains Downey.

Our government is not always aggressive in prosecuting Medicare fraud.  In fact, a  once  prominent Chicago-area nursing home mogul dubbed the "King of Medicaid Fraud," was released from prison after President Donald Trump commuted his sentence on December 22, 2020. Esformes was convicted in 2019 for orchestrating a $1.3 billion Medicare and Medicaid fraud scheme, involving cycling thousands of nursing home residents while fraudulently collecting millions from government programs.

The scheme, described as the most extensive single criminal healthcare fraud case, led to a 20-year prison sentence. Esformes faced additional allegations of neglect and numerous wrongful death lawsuits. The commutation raised concerns, as it reduced the sentence without vacating the conviction. Medicare fraud, as defined by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, includes intentional deception, false claims, and kickbacks.

Nursing home financial fraud is more common than most people think, explains whistleblower attorney Jeffrey Downey.  Given their ability to bill Medicare for skilled care services, some nursing homes up-code billing codes to recover more reimbursement than they are entitled to. While former President Trump talked about being tough on fraudsters during the campaign, as President, he never aggressively prosecuted healthcare fraud," explains Jeffrey J. Downey, an attorney who has handled False Claims Act cases against nursing homes. "The fact that he commuted the sentence of one of the worst fraud offenders known as the King of Medicare Fraud shows that he was never serious about addressing this pervasive problem. If you are aware of Medicare fraud, call the Law Office of Jeffrey J. Downey to see if you can become a whistleblower, where you could recover some 15% to 25% of the government’s recovery under the False Claims Act."
