Howard Bogard Quoted in Medical Office Today

    August 30, 2012

    Birmingham-based partner Howard E. Bogard was interviewed recently by Medical Office Today about the growing trend of back-office fraud in medical practices.

    Back-office fraud is more prevalent than people believe,” Bogard tells the publication. “A few hundred dollars here and there soon adds up to significant losses. Back-office fraud typically arises in two forms: embezzlement of funds or identity theft. Embezzlement seems to be more prevalent in smaller physician offices where one person may handle receivables, accounts payable and have access to the practice’s bank account, while identity theft can occur in all medical practices, especially if the medical charts contain social security numbers and financial information.” Bogard and other industry leaders provide tips for preventing and dealing with back-office fraud.

    TESTIMONIALS

    • “I have an excellent working relationship with a number of attorneys at the firm, all of whom I trust to handle our problems. Even at a generously negotiated rate, we pay the attorneys at Burr & Forman a slightly higher rate than we pay other attorneys for similar services. We are willing to pay that premium because of the firm’s competence in so many areas, whereas other smaller firms tend to specialize in areas and have weaknesses in others.”

    • “Larry’s knowledge of the bankruptcy code is as good as I’ve seen in my years working with Chapter 11 cases and financially distressed companies. He also brings a practical side in resolving issues with various creditor groups. This ability to address various groups the strong and weak points in a non-confrontational manner avoids undue delay and costly litigation in many cases. However, when confrontation is unavoidable, Larry is quite the fine trial lawyer as well.”

    • “Lauren is smart, professional in word and manner, and quite intuitive in analyzing situations. She thinks through and researches issues before proposing solutions. One of her best qualities is that of keeping her client(s) focused on the defined goals for settling the problems at hand using her cheerful personality.  It is indeed a pleasure working with Lauren."
