Interesting to hear about the interplay between MD judgment and finding of falsity to support a fraud claim, since I primarily represent MDs in malpractice litigation.
The materials were very helpful and helped to clarify the relationship between AKS and Stark. The updated case law was also very helpful, as well, as the discussion on recent cases.
Outstanding, well presented, great materials.
I work in TennCare so this was particularly interesting to me, outside my scope of practice but showing issues on the other side of the coin, so to speak.
I attended this introductory course in a subject area I currently practice. It was helpful to hear the presentation covering situations I work in daily, and I did hear a few insights from the governmental attorney about his perspective on health care false claims and other similar matters. While I was familiar with most of the materials from my practice, I thought this was a well-done introduction to health care fraud and abuse laws, and still valuable for a more experienced practitioner to attend as a refresher.
