Bass, Berry & Sims attorney Scott Gallisdorfer joined fellow attorneys and compliance professionals working in the healthcare space to discuss key developments in fraud and abuse in 2020 and what to look for in 2021 on an episode of the AHLA’s Speaking of Health Law podcast.

Scott provided insight specifically on the Department of Justice’s (DOJ’s) 2018 Granston Memo stating that, “Although the Granston Memo didn’t explicitly purport to be a change in policy, that has certainly seemed to be its effect.” He continued, “It’s been three years since it was issued, and I think everyone would agree that we have definitely seen a meaningful uptick in the number of instances in which DOJ is seeking to dismiss whistleblower lawsuits.”

The podcast, “Fraud and Abuse: 2020 in Review and a Look Ahead to 2021,” was produced as part of the AHLA’s Speaking of Health Law podcast series and is available online or wherever you get your podcast content.
