Healthcare Fraud and Abuse Litigation

An Overview

The phrase “fraud and abuse” is an ominous one in the healthcare industry as it generally connotes a federal or state enforcement investigation or prosecution into alleged civil or criminal violations of healthcare laws. As any healthcare provider knows, there are myriad federal and state governmental agencies that are tasked with investigating and prosecuting suspected fraud and abuse offenders, and the punishments for fraud and abuse violations can range from civil fines to criminal penalties up to and including incarceration for the most serious offenses. The federal government, in particular, focuses significant resources every year on investigating fraud and abuse and prosecuting offenders, particularly those who are accused of violating the Anti-Kickback Statute, the Stark Law, and the False Claims Act.
