The session will first discuss new enforcement risks for physicians and hospitals and the legal theories the government pursues in quality care and medical necessity investigations. Presenters will also discuss how reporting requirements impact payments to providers in connection with the false claims act, and how quality and medical necessity should factor into an organization's fraud and abuse program and compliance obligations.
