Kevin J. Ryan, a Member of the Firm in the Health Care and Life Sciences practice, in the firm’s Chicago office, was quoted in Modern Healthcare, in “Historic Number of Medicare Fraud Arrests Could Signal More to Come,” by Lisa Schencker.
Following is an excerpt:
Kevin Ryan, a member of law firm Epstein Becker & Green, said it’s not surprising that there hasn’t been as much enforcement of Medicare Part D fraud as there has with other parts of Medicare before now because the program is relatively new. Medicare Part D was implemented in 2006.
“I think you can expect enforcement in all parts of Medicare, and the fact that there’s now been major enforcement in Part D just goes to show you there are not sections or parts of Medicare that are exempt from enforcement when it comes to fraud,” Ryan said.
