In your role as general counsel/in-house attorney for a healthcare or related entity, you are tasked with a variety of legal responsibilities. Many of these duties involve intricate, often exhaustive analysis of what a healthcare provider can and cannot do under the Anti-Kickback Statutes, Stark Laws, False Claims Act, and other protective healthcare fraud measures. The answers are not always clear-cut, and one wrong move before or during a government healthcare investigation can lead to severe penalties, including exclusion from Medicare/Medicaid.
The most effective way for in-house counsel to understand the specifics of government healthcare investigations, and how to address them, is through the healthcare attorneys who are engaged in the practice full time.
That is where our knowledge, experience, and broad skills in this sector of healthcare law make the difference.
Our In-House Counsel Guide to Government Healthcare Investigations is authored by Ronald W. Chapman II, chair of Chapman Law Group’s national, in-demand White Collar/Government Investigations practice group.
Ron’s insight into how the Department of Justice and other federal agencies — including the DEA, FBI, HHS, and FDA — deploy healthcare fraud actions make him one of the top healthcare-based criminal law attorneys in the U.S. His book of business is full of many court victories for healthcare practitioners and entities charged with healthcare fraud and abuse.
More importantly, Ron regularly serves as defense counsel in federal healthcare investigations and uses unique strategies when leading corporate internal (or “shadow”) investigations.
It is this kind of acumen that will give you the grasp necessary to do right by your healthcare entity, should a governmental agency initiate a healthcare fraud investigation.
