K&L Gates Triage: 2018 Health Care Fraud Takedown
Recently, the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) and Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) announced its largest ever national health care fraud takedown, resulting in charges against 601 diverse defendants including health care entities and individual providers. In this episode, Mark Rush and John Lawrence discuss some of the major trends of the takedown, including a focus on unlawful distribution of opioids and other prescription narcotics and a focus on holding individuals accountable, as well as practical takeaways from the takedown for those in the health care industry.
