The Department of Justice, the Department of Health and Human Services' Office of the Inspector General, and other state and federal governmental authorities have intensified their investigative focus on health care entities. These federal and state agencies have enhanced enforcement weapons that subject health care providers to increased exposure to civil and criminal liability, fines, and exclusion from the Medicare and Medicaid programs. Government agencies are aggressively pursuing providers for allegedly violating the False Claims Act, federal anti-kickback laws, and physician self-referral laws.

Health care providers should not wait for government contact before developing a strategy to respond to a government investigation. This program will provide practical strategies for responding to a government investigation and offer ways to improve an organization's compliance efforts. Specifically, we will discuss:

  • Practical tips for conducting an internal investigation
  • Advice for interviewing employee-witnesses
  • Ways to establish the investigators' trust
  • Effective negotiation techniques when interacting with government investigators

You should attend this program if you are an administrator, a chief executive officer, a chief financial officer, a compliance officer, an in-house attorney, or a billing manager of any covered entity, including an academic medical center, an ambulance provider, a clinical laboratory, a DMEPOS supplier, a hospital, a long-term care facility, a health plan, an MA Plan, a Part D Plan, a pharmacy, a physician group, a skilled nursing facility, or another health care provider.
