Fraud and Abuse Counseling
For most healthcare entities, the federal and state civil and criminal laws governing fraud and abuse pose the single most significant area of legal risk. Our lawyers are familiar with false claims acts, self-referral and anti-kickback limitations, and fee-splitting laws. We work closely with clients to develop compliance programs, structure transactions and other financial relationships, establish pricing and guide business operations consistent with these laws. We consult, as appropriate, with government administrative agency and legislative officials to keep our clients informed of the latest enforcement developments and trends.
