Representation of Hospice Company: U.S. ex rel. Hinkle v. Caris Healthcare, LP (E.D. Tenn.)

We served as lead counsel representing a multi-state hospice provider in an investigation of alleged False Claims Act (FCA) violations concerning the medical necessity of hospice services. Following a Department of Justice (DOJ) intervention and extensive litigation, we negotiated a successful resolution of the litigation with no payment of attorneys’ fees to relator or imposition of administrative remedies. This matter was reported by Law360 as among the Health Care Cases to Watch in 2017 for its consideration of the issue of medical necessity in FCA-related litigation.
