Brian Bewley and Kaitlyn Dunn Examine New HHS “Fraud Risk Indicator” Initiative

October 1, 2018

Bass, Berry & Sims attorneys Brian Bewley and Kaitlyn Dunn co-authored an article for Law360 with attorneys Howard Young and Jacob Harper from Morgan Lewis & Bockius LLP about the new initiative from the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) designed to increase transparency for healthcare organizations and their attorneys. The new initiative, named the “Fraud Risk Indicator,” will include tracking and posting a list of healthcare entities that, after October 1, 2018, refused to agree to a Corporate Integrity Agreement (CIA) as part of a civil False Claims Act (FCA) settlement when the Office of Inspector General (OIG) had determined a CIA was necessary.
