The Tampa Health Law Offices
of Anthony C. Vitale, P.A.

Established in 1982, The Health Law Offices of Anthony C. Vitale P.A. is a recognized leader in Medicare fraud and Medicaid fraud defense. Our team of experienced professionals concentrates on all aspects of Medicare and Medicaid fraud defense.

In an era of heightened regulatory enforcement, our decades of experience provides us with an in depth understanding of the challenges our clients face each day as they navigate the complex healthcare industry. Our clients range from individual practitioners to healthcare systems.

We concentrate our practice on healthcare fraud defense and challenging fraud and abuse laws. We successfully challenged Florida´s anti-kickback statute, which resulted in the state´s highest court finding the law unconstitutional and the Florida Legislature amending the law.

We also work closely with our clients on compliance matters to mitigate the risk of becoming the target of a Medicare fraud or Medicaid fraud investigation. We take a proactive approach to developing compliance programs, providing advice on matters relating to billing and reimbursement, fee splitting and privacy laws.

Our team stays on top of the healthcare industry’s ever-changing rules and regulations to help our clients remain in compliance.

Our attorneys represent clients who are under investigation by the U.S. Department of Justice, Federal Bureau of Investigation, Drug Enforcement Administration, Food and Drug Administration, Internal Revenue Service, U.S. Attorney’s Office, Office of the Inspector General, Florida Attorney General, Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, Medicaid Fraud Control Unit, Florida Department of Health, and Florida Department of Financial Services Insurance Fraud Division, among others.

Our mission is to respond quickly and aggressively to protect our clients’ business and personal interests and to meet the demands and challenges they face each day in one of today’s most highly regulated and competitive industries.

We have 25 years of experience successfully representing clients for a variety of health care related issues including: health care fraud; Medicare fraud; Medicare audits, appeals and litigation; Medicare overpayments and criminal Medicare defense.
