On June 10, Rivkin Radler partner Bob Iseman will discuss False Claims Act (FCA) compliance in the next installment of the firm’s Healthcare Compliance Lunch & Learn series, “How to avoid False Claims Act violations.” The webinar registration page is here.

The FCA applies to any person or entity doing business with the federal government. Every year, the government collects billions of dollars from FCA defendants, and most of that is from the healthcare industry. This program will suggest numerous practical, proactive, self-defense tactics against the ever-expanding application of the FCA in these areas:

  • employed physicians
  • fair market value and commercial reasonableness
  • internal investigations
  • qui tam relators and
  • whistleblowers

as well as other similar areas of risk and concern. There will also be an update on new, hot topics in FCA compliance such as telehealth and Payroll Protection Program loans. The program, to be presented virtually via Zoom, will be moderated by Robert Hussar, a partner in Rivkin Radler’s Compliance, Investigations & White Collar and Health Services practice groups.

Other upcoming Lunch & Learn programs will include:
