Health care fraud and compliance has changed dramatically in the last several years. The Affordable Care Act brought new requirements and a new potential for liability, and the revitalized False Claims Act has been applied in the health care arena much more in the last 10 years.
Join Suffolk Law’s Center for Advanced Legal Studies on Nov. 7 from 4-7:30 p.m. for a summit on the changing regulatory environment and new directions in health care fraud litigation.
Suffolk Law graduate Thomas M. Greene, JD ’77, will lead the first panel to discuss health care and pharmaceutical litigation under the False Claims Act.
“My settlement of the first off-label promotion case under the False Claims Act in 2004 kicked off $14 billion in other government recoveries in the last 10 years,” Greene said. “We are also starting to see health care insurers bring private claims; as my team showed in 2010 with a $142 million verdict against Pfizer, one can even bring RICO to bear in the health care context.”
The program’s second panel will feature compliance professionals from several sides of the compliance process, including outside counsel and panelists with compliance responsibilities from area hospitals.
