Health Care Enforcement in 2016: A Look Back on 2015 and Forecasting the Year Ahead


Date: January 13, 2016

Time: 8:00AM - 9:00AM

Location: Webinar


Although 2015 was a year of transition for the US Department of Justice (DOJ), health care fraud remains a top enforcement priority. On both the criminal and civil sides, federal prosecutors emphasized their ongoing cooperation with each other, their commitment to holding individuals accountable, and the value of corporate compliance programs.

In this webinar, we will review DOJ policy statements and enforcement actions, and the likely impact of the 2015 enforcement trends on the outlook for 2016.


  • The Yates Memo: a policy change or business as usual for the DOJ?
  • The added resource of compliance counsel in the DOJ Fraud Section for the evaluation of compliance programs
  • Increased prosecutions of Medicare fraud and related offenses, including the largest Strike Force nationwide takedown in its history
  • The prioritization of particular programs and providers by DOJ's Civil Division
  • Notable settlements and decisions from 2015, and significant appellate decisions upcoming in 2016 about the scope of the FCA
