2017 was another banner year in fraud and abuse enforcement, with the Department of Justice bringing in more than $2.4 billion under the False Claims Act alone. And 2018 is off to a busy start. In just a few short months:
- The OIG has continued to bless gainsharing arrangements even while CMS has issued mixed messages about new reimbursement models;
- Civil monetary penalties for health care fraud have increased (following 2017’s increase in False Claims Act fines to $21,916 per claim);
- Enforcement agencies have continued to focus on holding individuals accountable for their role in health care fraud through OIG exclusion and individual criminal prosecution; and
- OCR’s preliminary results from Phase 2 of the HIPAA Audit Program were released, and the results were surprisingly bad.
These developments stand to have a significant impact on organizations and their compliance programs.
Please join Gray Plant Mooty attorneys, Jesse Berg and Julia Reiland for a roundtable breakfast and webinar to discuss enforcement updates in the health care industry and what these trends might mean for your organization. We will provide an overview of recent enforcement efforts by DOJ, OIG and OCR, highlighting compliance issues that we expect to be in the spotlight this year.
