Fraud indictments, civil and criminal are not just reserved for large institutions. As a matter of fact, prosecutors like to target small practices, thinking they will settle without fighting the accusations because of the large costs involved. The concept of innocent until proven guilty does not really exist in this area and practices are at great risk without even realizing it.
There are also however, stories of bravery and tenacity where doctors have tangled with the Assistant US Attorney and after a very long time and a great deal of money spent, finally came out on top, with an acquittal. But acquittals are not guaranteed and a negative outcome could have landed them in jail or loss of medical licenses. When you are playing in the big leagues the costs are great!
This webinar by expert speaker Barbara J. Cobuzzi will provide you lessons from real life stories of innocent doctors who have suffered fraud indictments and finally came out on top with acquittals. These lessons will give you the knowledge and strategies to remain compliant, shield your practice from civil and criminal fraud indictments, and how to respond when you suffer acquisitions.
