The DME supplier must adhere to myriad anti-fraud statutes and regulations. If the supplier "crosses the line," then it may be subjected to a civil and/or criminal investigation by the Department of Justice ("DOJ"). This program was an interactive presentation by a federal prosecutor and a white collar defense attorney. The speakers talked about the types of activities that gain the attention of the DOJ, how the DOJ investigates potential fraud, the factors that the DOJ looks at in deciding whether to bring a civil or criminal investigation, how the supplier should respond to an investigation, the importance of compliance programs, and how Corporate Integrity Agreements are utilized.
