Bass, Berry & Sims attorneys Danielle Sloane, Lauren Gaffney and Richard Eiler authored an article published in the February 2016 issue of AHLA Connections which analyzes notable fraud and abuse cases and settlements, predicts future regulatory enforcement trends and summarizes recent amendments to the Stark Law. AHLA Connections is the monthly publication of the American Health Lawyers Association (AHLA).

Specifically, the article analyzes important areas to watch in 2016 including: 

  • Regulatory risks associated with operating physician practices at a loss;
  • The effect of the Yates Memo and the DOJ's increased focus on individual liability related to allegations of abuse; and
  • Impact of significant amendments to the Stark Law including increased flexibility, eased technical burdens, and reduced ambiguity.

The full article, "A Guide to Setting 2016 Fraud and Abuse Resolutions (Based on Developments and Lessons Learned in 2015)," was published in the February 2016 issue of AHLA Connections and is available online (subscription required).
