Fraud & Abuse Update: Recent Healthcare Investigation Trends

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, which has resulted in a broad range of investigations from the FBI, U.S. Attorney Offices, and the FDA into hospitals, skilled nursing facilities, and other providers. There has been no sign that investigations will decrease under the new administration. Healthcare providers should be aware of the trends and areas that the federal government is pursuing and must be prepared for what to expect in light of 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 the government does initiate an inquiry. Giselle Joffre, a partner with MHA’s member law firm of Foley Hoag (and a former Assistant U.S. Attorney within the Civil & Criminal Divisions of the U.S. Attorney's Office in Boston) will be presenting along with other healthcare law experts from Foley Hoag.  Visit here for more information and registration details.
