The AHLA/HCCA Fraud and Compliance Forum (September 26-28, 2010) will provide practical guidance on the pressing legal and compliance issues that have arisen in the last twelve months. The program is designed specifically for compliance officers and health attorneys who must advise their clients and institutions on the latest developments in fraud and abuse and compliance issues. Attendees will hear from leading private practitioners and representatives from the Office of Counsel to the Inspector General, the Department of Justice, and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.

On Monday, September 27, Douglas Hastings, Chair of the Board of Directors, will co-present "Private Sector Activity and Public Sector Enforcement Priorities in the Accountable Care Era" with Lewis Morris.
