The Nashville Business Journal recently published an article titled "Feds Crack Down on Local Health Care Fraud" in which compliance attorneys Wally Dietz and Brian Roark are quoted. The article discusses the rising number of healthcare fraud cases being brought on by the U.S. Attorney's office and how this effort is taking center stage in Middle Tennessee, where a $30 billion healthcare industry lives.

Dietz and Roark comment on not only the need to have a "robust compliance program," but also the importance of being proactive rather than reactive when it comes to a government investigation.
