      • The relationship between and among enforcement authorities;
      • Criminal vs. civil enforcement – factors considered in the analysis of potential culpability;
      • Representative recent enforcement initiatives; and
      • Current and projected enforcement trends.

      This program will include presentations by representatives of the Southern and Eastern District Healthcare Civil and Criminal Fraud Units. Representatives of other state and federal enforcement agencies will present as well.

      This seminar presents an opportunity for attorneys and consultants that represent healthcare clients and entities (including doctors, hospitals, nursing homes and other medical providers as well as professionals who deal with these providers and joint venture with them), to hear from and perhaps speak with the federal and state enforcement representatives who are on the front lines of interpreting the appropriate enforcement of law in this complex, fast-evolving area.
