Healthcare is one of the most highly regulated industries in the country and providers of all types will eventually be called to action, whether it be responding to an investigation, conducting a compliance review, or proceeding with a self-disclosure. Bass, Berry & Sims has designed the Healthcare How-To Instructional Webinar Series to provide simple step-by-step instructions and best practices for responding accurately and efficiently while avoiding bad tactics, questionable strategies, and unnecessary risk which can create problems and less than ideal outcomes.
Government enforcement actions within the healthcare sector consistently constitute the overwhelming majority of the government’s financial recovery under the False Claims Act (FCA), and government enforcement efforts in healthcare show no sign of slowing. Healthcare companies and providers should not only institute appropriate compliance measures to mitigate risk associated with government investigations but also be prepared to respond swiftly and appropriately when contacted by the government. The Civil Investigative Demand (CID) is one of the government’s primary tools for investigating potential FCA violations.
Join us for a webinar in which our panel of healthcare fraud and abuse attorneys will discuss responding to a government investigation and specifically responding to a CID.
Topics addressed in the webinar will include:
- The government’s investigative authority – what is a CID?
- Best practices for responding to a CID.
- Privilege and confidentiality considerations associated with a CID response.
- Considering future ramifications of a CID response.
