Summary: William Mack Copeland, president of Executive & Managerial Development Group will be the speaker of a webinar that MentorHealth, a leading provider of continuing professional education for the healthcare industry, is organizing on November 6. The topic of this webinar is “The Federal False Claims Act: Enforcement and the Obamacare Expansion”.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Description:

This webinar offers an overview of the Federal Civil False Claims Act (FCA) and how it works. It will assess its enforcement activities, which will help participants understand how they may be at risk. It will also discuss recent cases and show how they potentially impact participants.

The speaker will begin by reviewing the Federal False Claims Act. He will provide an in-depth explanation of how it works and how it is being used to fight health care fraud. The way in which the various health care fraud task forces use the Federal False Claims Act and its whistleblower provisions to identify and prosecute health care fraud will be discussed.

This session will then move on to the Federal False Claims Act, a section in which the speaker will show step by step how an action is filed, how the government responds and how the courts interpret various elements of the Act. All the elements for bringing a successful case under the Act, such as proof, damages and how the whistleblower is rewarded, will be taken up for discussion. The speaker will also discuss retaliation under the Act and how the whistleblower is protected from retaliation. The way in which the Act is being used in the health care arena will be discussed.

The webinar will wind up with a review of the various cases to show how these statutes can be manipulated, and how the courts view compliance with them.

This session will cover the following areas:

o Federal False Claims Act (what it is and how it works),

o How the FCA is being used as an enforcement tool by the federal enforcement authorities, and

o How the fraud provisions of the Affordable Care Act are enhancing enforcement under the FCA.
