As healthcare fraud enforcement continues, the cases get larger and larger. Looking at these healthcare fraud cases can help providers to identify fraud and compliance issues in their operations and in their market. Providers need to stay abreast of enforcement and related trends in order to keep their compliance efforts up to speed. More and more providers are getting caught up in audits and related Medicare fraud cases enforcement activities. Know what the risks are and what the government is looking at before they show up at your door.
Join expert speaker Robert W. Markette, Jr., who will discuss the Medistat case as it has developed. What is the government alleging? Who did they arrest? How far afield did they look? You will see that the government is aware of a number of problems in the home health arena and is cracking down on them. Agencies that were not indicted directly in the Medistat case still saw their payments suspended under the new “credible allegation of fraud” suspension. Merely being affiliated with a provider that is engaged in wrongdoing can lead to a suspension, regardless of whether or not you engaged in any wrongdoing.
