Have you been accused of capping? Rely on Michael L. Fell to defend you in criminal court and at any professional discipline hearings.
Many professionals rely on referrals and word of mouth to grow and sustain their businesses. However, it is extremely important for these referrals to be natural—not bought and paid for. The practice of paying for referrals, aka “capping,” can be prosecuted as a felony under California law, resulting in serious criminal and professional consequences for doctors, dentists, lawyers, and other professionals.
If you have been accused of capping, you need to remember this:
Capping is Investigated and Prosecuted Aggressively
Because doctors, dentists, and lawyers involved in capping are often also involved in various insurance fraud schemes, the state takes capping very seriously. After all, the state does not want to be paying out Medi-Cal or Denti-Cal benefits for services never performed—and this often happens when healthy patients are recruited through capping.
So, if you are accused of capping, the last thing you want to do is sit back and wait for the accusations to sort themselves out. You need to be proactive.
