Description

On Feb. 1, 2022, the U.S. Department of Justice released its annual False Claims Act recovery statistics. In fiscal year 2021, DOJ recovered more than $5.6 billion in settlements and judgments from fraud and false claims cases. These results demonstrate the government's emphasis on fighting fraud when doing business with the government.

The healthcare industry leads the way in these recoveries and was responsible for over $5 billion, increasing the amount recovered in 2020 by over $3 billion. These monies were recovered from a variety of entities and individuals, including hospitals, managed care providers, laboratories, pharmaceutical manufacturers, and technology vendors.

Counsel to healthcare providers and other entities in the healthcare industry must evaluate the risks for healthcare fraud to prevent and minimize the likelihood of fraudulent conduct. Further, as both federal and state authorities pursue and prosecute healthcare fraud, healthcare counsel must stay on top of the latest enforcement trends to ensure compliance programs are in place and properly implemented.

Listen as our authoritative panel of healthcare attorneys examines the recent FCA recovery statistics and discusses the guidance they provide. The panel will discuss current enforcement trends and what to expect in 2022. The panel will also discuss recent court treatment and advisory opinions and offer guidance for minimizing and mitigating risk.
