Trends In Health Care Fraud Enforcement Seminar

January 25, 2017

Civil and criminal health care fraud enforcement remains a top priority for the Department of Justice, the Department of Health and Human Services, the Inspector General, and the Texas Attorney General. Texas has been identified by them as one of the states in which health care fraud is most prevalent and in which health care fraud enforcement is most needed. Please join several of the firm’s health care attorneys, one of whom has been Senior Vice President and Assistant General Counsel of a major medical center, and two of whom are former Justice Department prosecutors, as they discuss current trends in health care fraud enforcement in Texas.

Topics to be addressed include:

  • OIG’s Work Plan for 2017 Announcing its Goals and Priorities for the Year
  • Robust Compliance Plans that Deter and Detect Fraud
  • DOJ’s Increased Emphasis on the Prosecution of Individuals, Including Physicians and Executives
  • The HEAT Strike Forces’ Focus on Texas
  • The Justice Department’s Use of State Commercial Bribery Statutes to Bring Federal Prosecutions for Kickbacks in Cases Not Involving Medicare or Medicaid Claims
  • The Government’s Use of Data Analytics, Statistical Sampling, and Extrapolation to Identify Allegedly Fraudulent Claims
  • Responding to FBI Raids and FBI and OIG Contacts with your Employees
