False Claims Act “Hot Areas” – What You Need to Know: Audio Version of the Webinar

Expert presenter, Rachel V. Rose, JD, MBA, principal with Rachel V. Rose – Attorney at Law, P.L.L.C., Houston, TX guides us through current trends and tips.
With its roots stemming back to 1863, the False Claims Act continues to be the U.S. Department of Justice’s primary enforcement tool for returning money to the Federal Treasury. It is also considered one of five fundamental fraud, waste, and abuse laws, which potentially impact a provider every time a claim is submitted to Medicare, Medicaid, and other government programs because of the attestation language. The purpose of this webinar is to provide a synopsis of the False Claims Act and the current landscape in relation to coverage determinations and the federal Anti-Kickback Statute.

This webinar will cover the following objectives:

  1. Learn about current case law and some of the diverging opinions in different federal courts.
  2. Appreciate the hot areas of potential liability.
  3. Understand how a legitimate and robust compliance program comes into play with the recent changes to the DOJ’s cooperation credit and compensation reforms from both the criminal and civil divisions.
