Emerging Fraudulent Schemes in Health Care: A Guide to Protecting Plan and Provider Organizations

Over the past few years, there has been tightening enforcement and numerous lawsuits driven by the increasingly complex web of federal and state anti-kickback and anti-inducement statutes. In a new CLE-eligible webinar, Manatt Health will guide plans and providers through the emerging landscape of fraudulent health care schemes—and provide practical answers to the legal questions that have arisen in recent litigation and enforcement actions. 

During the free webinar, our panelists—all with a proven track record of successfully defending litigants that have been forced to deal with inducement-based lawsuits in both federal and state courts—will share an overview of the current litigation and policy landscape and offer insights into how plans and providers can protect themselves and their organizations. The webinar also will discuss the findings from internal investigations that have uncovered fraudulent activities and improper conduct impacting patients’ health and safety and plans’ and providers’ financial viability. Key topics that will be covered include:

  • The anti-kickback and anti-inducement statutes that federal and state governments and private payers rely on to address fraudulent practices in the health care industry 
  • Civil and criminal enforcement actions that federal and state governments, as well as private parties, may bring under the many broad-ranging laws that apply to fraudulent schemes and inducement conduct in the health care industry
  • Payers’ and providers’ rights and obligations to identify and prevent fraud, waste and abuse 
  • An overview of the commonly used tools available to investigate and address fraud
  • Tips to help plans and providers defend themselves in the event of litigation or regulatory action
