The Heat is (Still) On: Fraud and abuse compliance and enforcement
Healthcare organizations are under increasing pressure to keep up with a myriad of regulatory compliance and operational issues, and there’s no sign that government enforcement efforts are likely to ease up under the new administration. In their presentation titled “The Heat is (Still) On: Fraud abuse compliance and enforcement” at McAfee & Taft’s “What’s Hot in Healthcare 2017” seminar, attorneys Ron Shinn and Terra Parten discuss trends in enforcement efforts, including how the government is using more sophisticated techniques to detect fraud and abuse and prove liability and damages. The presentation also includes a review of the new corporate compliance program guidance issued by the U.S. Department of Justice’s Fraud Section and how it provides a blueprint for assessing corporate compliance programs.
