Under the Medicaid False Claims Act, it is illegal to knowingly make a false claim for Medicaid service to a state agent or to knowingly misrepresent that a medical good or service provided under Medicaid was medically necessary.  Each misrepresentation counts as a separate offense. 

A health facility is not liable under this section unless the health facility conspired or colluded with a physician in falsely representing the medical necessity of services.  A person who violates this section is guilty of a felony to be punishable by imprisonment for a maximum of 4 years or a maximum of fine of $50,000, or both.
