Bass, Berry & Sims attorneys Matt Curley and Brian Roark will speak at the Nashville Council of Health Care Attorneys meeting on May 12. The presentation, called "Healthcare Fraud in Seven Acts" will discuss what seven recent cases tell us about the current status of healthcare fraud enforcement, including:
- When can the government hold a provider liable for submitting false claims without putting on proof of submission of false claims
- Under what circumstances is employing a physician at a financial loss commercially reasonable
- Can resolving overpayment liability through a repayment still leave a provider open to qui tam liability
- What ethical obligations are triggered by cooperating with the government in health care fraud investigations
- Can providers be held liable under the FCA for regulatory violations not material to government payment decisions
The session will be held May 12, 2015 at Community Health Systems in Franklin, Tennessee.
