The OIG and Department of Justice are actively pursuing alleged Stark and fraud and abuse law violators as they become more comfortable with these complex laws. This year may very well be a watershed year for prosecutions in which providers are now facing huge multimillion dollar liabilities for alleged Stark and anti-kickback violations. At the same time, there is a strong uptick in applicants seeking to self-disclose possible violations and to negotiate a settlement with the government.
There are many lessons to be learned from this recent enforcement activity. First, providers should be aware of and avoid the types of arrangements that are more likely to invite scrutiny. Further, the prosecution and court rulings in these cases provide insight into how certain unclear provisions in the law are being interpreted, which should in turn impact provider conduct. Also, it is becoming clearer when voluntarily disclosing misconduct makes sense.
Join Wayne J. Miller, Esq., for this information packed 60 minutes audio session to discuss the pending cases in detail and address the lessons to be learned.
Topics to be covered include:
Who should attend? Hospitals, physicians, practice managers, medical groups, health care consultants and medical practice and facility executives
