The Federal False Claims Act Enforcement and the Obamacare Expansion Webinar By MentorHealth
Overview: The session will provide an overview of the Federal Civil False Claims Act (FCA) and how it works. It will also provide an assessment of enforcement activities, showing how participants may be at risk. In addition, the session will review recent cases and show how they potentially impact participants.
We will start with a review of the Federal False Claims Act and discuss how it works and how it is being used to fight health care fraud. We will discuss how the various health care fraud task forces use the Federal False Claims Act and its whistleblower provisions to identify and prosecute health care fraud. The webinar will take the Federal False Claims Act apart and show step by step how an action is filed, how the government responds and how the courts interpret various elements of the Act. We will discuss proof, damages under the Act and how the whistleblower is rewarded for bringing a successful case. In addition, we will discuss retaliation under the act and how the whistleblower is protected from retaliation. Finally, we will discuss how the Act is being used in the health care arena.
Finally, the webinar will review various cases to show how easy it is to run afoul of these statutes, and how the courts view compliance with them.
