Ellyn Sternfield will speak in the Bloomberg BNA webinar titled, "Emerging Issues in the Prosecution and Defense of State Medicaid False Claims Cases."
Cases involving false claims submitted to state Medicaid programs are not only becoming more commonly discussed in the press but also more complicated to pursue and settle. Government, defense, and realtor’s counsel handling Medicaid-based false claims actions brought under State False Claims Acts (FCAs), or brought pendant to a federal FCA case, must increasingly consider the interests of parties ancillary to the fraudulent conduct who become directly involved in the proceedings, including private counsel hired by State Attorneys General to pursue these cases; health plans which administer Medicaid managed care programs; and consumer or class action counsel who want to claim additional non-FCA damages related to the same conduct.
The faculty for this program will discuss cases involving private counsel retained as special assistant attorneys general, cases involving Medicaid managed care, and cases involving state consumer-based remedies for Medicaid false claims.
