In today's era of increased fraud and abuse enforcement, it’s imperative that
all individuals working in any facet of the healthcare industry be familiar with
the basics of the False Claims Act and its recent evolution into a powerful
regulatory tool for the government and private citizens.
The McGuireWoods white paper "Eleven
Things to Know About the False Claims Act" is a useful primer to help
individuals identify potential violations of the False Claims Act. It will also
help individuals better understand how the Act is enforced against and applied
within the healthcare industry, including individual providers, medical device
manufacturers and pharmaceutical companies.
