    False Claims Act & The Health Care Industry: Counseling & Litigation

    Order Today!

    This Third Edition of False Claims Act & the Health Care Industry has been prepared in response to False Claims Act (FCA) amendments, the surge of false claims litigation and recoveries, and the rapidly developing case law. It is intended to help health care lawyers, accountants, executives, and other professionals assess a company’s potential exposure to false claims liability and reform company practices to reduce the risk of liability by providing a comprehensive analysis of the FCA and its interpretation. This new edition analyzes legislative changes to:

    • The FCA’s reverse false claims provision; 
    • The FCA’s whistleblower retaliation provision; and
    • The FCA’s public disclosure bar.

    In the wake of these changes, courts across the country, including the United States Supreme Court, have issued significant decisions that impact the operation of health care businesses. This book analyzes those decisions, addressing:

    • Defenses that the defendant’s claim is not “false;”  
    • Defenses that the defendant did not “know” that the claim or statement is “false;” 
    • Defenses that the defendant’s knowingly false claims or statements are not “material” to the government’s determination to pay; 
    • The status of actions where the relator’s action repeats public information;  
    • And more.

  • Life Science Educational Call (February 2020)

    Includes a Live Web Event on 02/24/2020 at 11:00 AM (EST)

    California Consumer Privacy Act: Impact on Health Care and Life Sciences Companies

    Time: 11:00-11:45 AM Eastern (45 minutes)
    Format: Educational Call
    Topic: California Consumer Privacy Act: Impact on Health Care and Life Sciences Companies

    The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) has created new rights and obligations regarding the collection, use, and sharing of California residents’ personal information. Beginning January 1, 2020, the CCPA gives California residents new rights over their information, imposes additional obligations on certain businesses that collect and use California residents’ information, and creates a private right of action for California residents impacted by data breaches. In this educational call, the presenters will discuss the impact of the CCPA on health care and life sciences companies. The presenters will consider the impact of the CCPA on both local California companies and national companies that collect information about California residents. We will address the types of “businesses” covered by the CCPA and the definitional carve-outs that may apply to certain health care and life sciences companies. We will also focus on the CCPA exceptions relevant to these industries, including the HIPAA, CMIA, and clinical trial exceptions, as well as the exception for de-identified and aggregate data and its relationship to HIPAA de-identification standards

    Note: No CLE offered for this course.

      Autism rates have exploded nationally from 1 in 166 children to 1 in 59 over the last 15 years. This statistic alone makes it incumbent upon all health care attorneys to prepare their clients, whether it be clinicians, provider organizations or payors to understand: the scope of services available for treatment and payment under various state and federal laws; the role schools play; the standards developing in the court system for the payment of medically necessary services.

      Beyond treatment and payment, it is also incumbent upon health care attorneys to understand the heightened interest among private equity firms in the autism services space and prepare their provider clients to efficiency access growth capital and prepare for liquidity events, should one desire. Why is the sector so attractive and why does it garner the attention of private equity investors?

      The “Listen with a Colleague" option allows multiple registrants from the same organization and location to participate in the webinar at a discounted rate. It may ONLY be used if at least one person from your organization and location has registered at the regular/full webinar registration rate. Please note that those who register under the reduced “Listen with a Colleague" rate must access the webinar from the same location and computer as the full-priced registrant they are registered under.

      The “Listen with a Colleague" option is continuing legal education (CLE) credit-eligible. In order to obtain a certificate of completion for submission to a state CLE accrediting body, those registered under this option must obtain the attendance verification code—which will be displayed at a random time during the webinar—and enter that code under “Verification Code for Live Webinar" section of the webinar description webpage. Please note that each registrant must submit a complete evaluation from their individual accounts to obtain a certificate of completion.
