Fraud & Abuse: 2019 Year in Review
In 2019, the United States Government continued its aggressive scrutiny of the health care industry using a variety of anti-fraud tools and compliance requirements. Health care entities continue to face high levels of risk under the Federal False Claims Act and other fraud and abuse laws including the Anti-Kickback Statute and the Stark Law. In the last 12 months, the Government has also issued guidance and rolled out a number of initiatives that may be advantageous to health care providers and other stakeholders.
