In this Diagnosing Health Care episode, hear how the government’s fraud and abuse enforcement priorities have shifted as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and how compliance programs must also pivot to mitigate new risks. The episode is hosted by Bonnie Scott and features Stuart GersonMelissa Jampol, and Jennifer Michael, all former government enforcers and now Epstein Becker Green attorneys. 

Here’s a preview of what you’ll hear:

  • “The False Claims Act is the government's biggest enforcement weapon in conjunction with private relators, qui tam relators. . . . There are a whole bunch of potential pitfalls, and a group of federal agencies that are standing ready to pounce on allegations.” – Stuart Gerson, Member of the Firm
  • “Compliance programs must evolve and they must pivot, and they must proactively learn about the risks of misconduct within the company and their industry.” – Melissa Jampol, Member of the Firm
  • “You definitely don't want to be in a situation where you have to explain to the government why you didn't do anything about a significant compliance issue that an employee reported but you didn't do anything about.” – Jennifer Michael, Member of the Firm
  • “The government now might be going after more egregious conduct, but later we can expect less egregious conduct to also be under the microscope. And the government will carefully be considering the contents as well as the intent of the parties.” – Bonnie Scott, Associate
