  • False Claims Act, Known Overpayments, Kickbacks and Stark: The Next Wave of FCA Actions - On Demand Recording

    Recorded On: 04/30/2018

    Our expert panel will address these and other emerging FCA developments. This is an intermediate program intended for lawyers and compliance professionals who defend FCA actions or investigate whether an FCA violation has occurred.

    Time: 90 minutes
    Session Format: On Demand Recording

    The False Claims Act (FCA) is the federal government's primary weapon to combat allegations of fraud and abuse in its programs.  Over the past year, significant new trends have emerged regarding FCA enforcement and risk, such as how circuit courts have applied the Supreme Court's ruling in Escobar, how courts are construing what constitutes a known overpayment that must be remitted to the government, and when violations of the Anti-Kickback law and Stark law can constitute a violation of the FCA.  Also, the government's enforcement activities may shift as a result of the Department of Justice's recent Brand and Granston memos.

    Our expert panel will address these and other emerging FCA developments.  This is an intermediate program intended for lawyers and compliance professionals who defend FCA actions or investigate whether an FCA violation has occurred.

    Topics to be address would include trending FCA issues that a significant portion of AHLA's community would have an interest, such as how the FCA's materiality standard is evolving in light of the Supreme Court's ruling in Escobar and what opportunities are presented to defendants in light of the Court's ruling?; how FCA cases involving application of the Anti-Kickback law and Stark law are trending?; what courts are saying about FCA actions alleging a lack of medical necessity, or other issues turning on an application of clinical judgment?; and how are courts applying the 60-day overpayment rule in FCA actions?

    Level of Difficulty: Intermediate

    Intermediate-level programs generally offer focused discussions regarding common legal issues pertaining to the program topic. Intermediate programs include legal updates and changes in the law. Speakers will assume the audience has a working knowledge of this specialty of health law, and there will be limited review of the fundamentals. This program is designed to provide a targeted, comprehensive analysis of the subject matter for those practicing law in this specialty for three to seven years and/or those whose practice is periodically focused in the covered subject area.

  • The Opioid Crisis: A Prescription for Intense Oversight, Investigations and Litigation - On Demand Recording

    Recorded On: 04/26/2018

    Opioid addiction does not discriminate based on gender, age, or race, and its devastating effects on communities throughout the United States have propelled the opioid crisis to the top of the agenda for state and federal regulators, legislators, prosecutors and civil litigants.

    Time: 90 minutes
    Session Format: On Demand Recording

    Opioid addiction does not discriminate based on gender, age, or race, and its devastating effects on communities throughout the United States have propelled the opioid crisis to the top of the agenda for state and federal regulators, legislators, prosecutors and civil litigants.  According to FDA Commissioner Dr. Scott Gottlieb:

    "[W]e are facing an opioid epidemic “a public health crisis, and we must take all necessary steps to reduce the scope of opioid misuse and abuse. We will continue to take regulatory steps when we see situations where an opioid product's risks outweigh its benefits, not only for its intended patient population but also in regard to its potential for misuse and abuse."

    Controlled Substances, Rampant Litigation Beyond the human toll, the litigation and enforcement implications of the crisis are vast. Unlike prior industry-wide litigation, opioid litigation threatens stakeholders at every level of the distribution chain, including medical academia, accreditation bodies, pharmacy boards, manufacturers, distributors, formularies, PBMs, dispensers, retailers, importers, on-line marketers, hospitals, medical facilities, prescribing physicians, payors, employers, and members of the consuming public.

    Panel members will offer an overview of this burgeoning body of litigation and investigative activity and will provide insight into how the crisis has unfolded, where the litigation and oversight activities currently stand, and what to expect going forward.

  • The Impact of Tax Reform: Guiding Ourselves and Our Clients to Understanding and Success, PT IV - On Demand Recording

    Recorded On: 04/23/2018

    Getting down to brass tacks, this webinar will focus on what you really need to know to operate your healthcare organization after tax reform. The Act will not merely affect business strategy but daily operations as healthcare providers and payers grapple with both healthcare specific and more generally applicable provisions of the Act. Eliminating the individual mandate will affect the number of insured patients being seen by providers, and thus provider cash flow. The Act's changes will affect all employees and individuals, impacting employee compensation and business related expenses, and thus the ability to recruit new employees (including physicians) and structure fringe benefit programs. Carefully crafted compensation structures, as well as payroll and benefit systems, will have to be expeditiously reviewed and changed, even before interpretive guidance issued. Our panelists will share how they are navigating this uncertainty (i.e., what is a "trade or business" under the new UBIT rules?) and what to prepare for next.

  • Public Interest Webinar Series: Electronic Medical Records, Part I Ensuring the Integrity of EHRs—Practical Tips and Considerations - On Demand Recording

    Recorded On: 04/19/2018

    With the rapid advancement of electronic health records (EHR) comes the opportunity to improve patient care and manage healthcare delivery in more efficient and less cost prohibitive ways. As data systems and technologies evolve, protecting the privacy and security of health information and ensuring the integrity of EHRs is critical. EHR features such as cut and paste or "clone" capability, drop-down menus, and remote access ease administrative burdens on providers and should support better quality of care. If not implemented and monitored effectively, however, these features can lead to a number of unintended consequences (e.g., inaccurate data, authentication failures, breach incidents, or misdiagnoses). This webinar will focus on key integrity issues providers face and practical tips for avoiding common pitfalls. The panelists will also touch on enforcement and oversight of EHR standards, including the Privacy and Security Rules and best practices for maintaining accurate data and, in turn, patient trust.
