Health Care Enforcement Year in Review & 2020 Outlook Webinar


Date: February 13, 2020

Time: 12:30PM - 1:30PM (EST)

Health care fraud enforcement remained robust in 2019. While criminal enforcement actions involving opioids continued as a top enforcement priority, the civil False Claims Act still remains one of the government’s most powerful enforcement tools. In our annual webinar, Mintz’s Health Care Enforcement Defense team will review the key policy developments, settlements, and court decisions from 2019 and assess their likely impact in 2020 and beyond.

Topics will include:

  • Statistical analysis of trends in False Claims Act cases
  • DOJ’s continued focus on corporate cooperation and prosecuting individuals
  • DOJ’s implementation of new policies, including its efforts to control the litigation of declined qui tam cases through dismissal and the issuance of guidance affecting resolution of civil and criminal enforcement actions
  • Examination of common defendants and legal theories in health care fraud enforcement actions in 2019 and predictions for the future
  • Lessons learned from False Claims Act retaliation cases
