1:00 PM - 2:30 PM Eastern Standard Time

False Claims Act exposure has long been a danger zone for health care providers. But take heart - recent judicial decisions and DOJ policy changes have given providers new defensive avenues. Armed with insights from recent experiences, our presenters will discuss strategies for taking some of the pressure off and mitigating FCA exposure.  In this 90-minute webinar you will learn:

  • Materiality and other post-Escobar considerations
  • Potential implications of the Granston and Brand Memoranda
  • New, creative, and practical strategies to mitigate risk
  • How to better prepare and plan for government scrutiny
  • New approaches when the government and providers conflict
