Modern Healthcare

Mark Armstrong, a Member of the Firm in the Health Care and Life Sciences practice of Epstein Becker Green Wickliff & Hall in the Houston office, was quoted in Modern Healthcare magazine on the federal government's recent anti-fraud campaign in the health care industry.

The article, "Making Them Pay: High-cost of healthcare reform is fueling more fraud enforcement, putting hospitals, physicians, other providers on notice," stated that the Obama administration has put words and money behind stepped-up attention to fighting health care fraud, and lawyers expect to be navigating more investigations for their clients.

"I certainly think they're going to expand their net," said Armstrong. "Because of the risk that may be involved in going to trial, we'll see providers settling those claims."
