Health Care Fraud & Abuse

This course will address health care fraud and abuse, and the resulting impact on the health care industry, practice of medicine, treatment of patients, and any provider who accepts reimbursement from federally-funded health care programs such as Medicare or Medicaid. The course will provide an in-depth examination of federal and state False Claims Acts, qui tam litigation, nationwide case law, and related articles and commentaries. Additional topics to be discussed may include reimbursement issues; state and federal laws prohibiting physician self-referrals (Stark laws) and kickbacks as they relate to health care marketing and physician relationships with health care vendors; provider licensing and disciplinary actions, including exclusion from participation with federally-funded health care programs, and other current issues.
