Fraud & Abuse Update

Wednesday, October 25; 9 a.m. – 12 p.m.
MHA Conference Center, Burlington, Mass.

Over the last few years, the Departments of Justice and Health & Human Services have increased their scrutiny of healthcare providers, resulting in a broad range of investigations from the FBI, U.S. Attorney Offices and the FDA at hospitals, skilled nursing facilities, and other providers. Healthcare providers should be aware of the trends and areas that the federal government is pursuing and must be prepared in light of the developments in integrated care delivery models that include mergers, accountable care organizations, and affiliations.  All provider organizations are encouraged to attend this timely session where we plan to review current government scrutiny and provide guidance on how to respond if an inquiry is initiated. Giselle Joffre, a partner with MHA’s member law firm Foley Hoag (and a former Assistant U.S. Attorney within the Civil & Criminal Divisions of the U.S. Attorneys Office in Boston) will be presenting along with other healthcare law experts from Foley Hoag. This workshop will include presentations on recent false claims act investigations, anti-kickback statute investigations; and allegations of improper billing practices.
