CodeMap® Compliance Briefing: July 10, 2019
The Civil False Claims Act is the federal government's primary enforcement and litigation tool in combating health care fraud and abuse. The Department of Justice and other enforcement agencies rely heavily on these provisions for several reasons including the government's burden of proof is less than with criminal provisions and, as we will discuss, sanctions and penalties for violating these civil provisions are substantial.

As always, please send your questions, comments, and suggestions to us via email.
