This CLE course will guide healthcare counsel through the fraud and abuse risks related to accepting CARES Act provider relief funds. The panel will discuss what healthcare entities should do to mitigate these risks. The panel will also discuss government scrutiny and recent government guidance.


Healthcare entities and providers who participate in CARES Act programs should pay close attention to the False Claims Act's potential risks. Through new inspector general and reporting requirements, the CARES Act has put anti-fraud protections at the forefront and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and its Office of the Inspector General have been ramping up scrutiny and auditing of providers receiving CARES Act funds.

Healthcare providers and others in the healthcare industry should be proactive in mitigating risk when accepting CARES Act funds. Whether conducting regular audits, ensuring compliance programs are in place, or planning for government scrutiny, healthcare entities should document the use of the funds accurately and avoid misrepresentations.

Listen as our authoritative panel of healthcare attorneys examines the fraud and abuse implications of the CARES Act provider relief fund and what providers should do to mitigate the fraud and abuse risk. The panel will also address government guidance and monitoring.
