Healthcare Fraud, Law360 Health Group of the Year 2017

Healthcare Fraud & Abuse

Watch video to see how Bass, Berry and Sims can help companies from all sectors of healthcare navigate enforcement and compliance issues related to fraud and abuse.

No industry faces more government scrutiny related to fraud and abuse than healthcare. From whistleblower lawsuits under the False Claims Act to industrywide investigations spearheaded by the U.S. Department of Justice to ever-changing Medicare compliance requirements, healthcare companies are exposed to a wide range of investigations and enforcement actions by both federal and state officials.

With our base in Nashville, the nation's healthcare capital, and our office in Washington, D.C., our healthcare fraud and abuse attorneys understand both the business and the politics of healthcare. Our counsel goes beyond the legal issues to consider all of the operational and management issues a healthcare organization faces when a healthcare fraud and abuse matter arises.

Government Enforcement

Download Healthcare Fraud and Review 2016, written by Bass, Berry & Sims attorneysWe routinely represent healthcare providers faced with fraud and abuse enforcement actions by the government and litigation stemming from those enforcement efforts. Our practice is led by our Healthcare Fraud Task Force, which includes former members of the U.S. Department of Justice and a number of former Assistant U.S. Attorneys with significant experience handling healthcare fraud matters across the country. Our attorneys bring the knowledge of having worked inside the government, providing great insight into how HHS-OIG, U.S. Department of Justice and the various State Attorneys' General offices think about fraud and abuse in healthcare and the strategies they use to pursue these cases.

We provide healthcare clients with counsel and support for every sort of civil and criminal exposure, across all sectors of healthcare, including:

  • Alleged violations of various healthcare fraud and abuse laws such as the Stark Law and the Anti-Kickback Statute
  • Litigation arising under the False Claims Act
  • Alleged violations of the Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act
  • Medicare compliance, Medicaid compliance and audits (RAC audits, ZPIC audits)

These civil and criminal actions threaten enormous potential damages and exclusion from Medicare and Medicaid – a loss of revenue that could imperil the viability of a healthcare provider. The attorneys on our Healthcare Fraud Task Force understand the high stakes involved through years of experience and detailed knowledge of healthcare regulations and fraud and abuse laws and the agencies that enforce them.
