Healthcare Fraud and Abuse, Investigations and Enforcement Defense Better health

Healthcare providers find themselves operating in a rapidly evolving and active enforcement environment with the passage and implementation of strict anti-fraud provisions of the Affordable Care Act, reduced reimbursement, and more aggressive enforcement positions taken by government agencies. The margin for error in creating, operating and monitoring a business in the healthcare industry has never been smaller and the risks never greater.

Barnes & Thornburg is committed to providing quality service to its healthcare clients in this shifting regulatory environment. Our full-service team of highly skilled professionals provides regulatory advice on fraud and abuse issues related to the:

  • Stark Law
  • Anti-Kickback Statute
  • False Claims Act
  • Federal criminal and securities laws
  • Foreign Corrupt Practices Act
  • Criminal healthcare fraud statutes
  • Federal and state laws targeting fraud, waste and abuse

We conduct complex internal investigations related to allegations of fraud, waste, abuse, and other regulatory and process failures. Clients turn to us to develop and manage robust and effective regulatory compliance programs and training to help avoid pitfalls.

The team also has significant experience defending healthcare providers against actions brought by state and federal enforcement agencies, including the Department of Justice, the HHS Office of Inspector General, the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services, states' attorneys general, state professional boards, private whistleblowers, the Drug Enforcement Administration and the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Going the extra mile for our clients is what we do. We work hard to become trusted advisors, so that clients turn to us when they are facing a government investigation or internal compliance risk.
