SFCA Proposed Regulations 12/5/2019 - deadline 12/9 COB
Although the deadline for comments is quickly approaching
(our apologies - we missed this when it was released), we wanted to draw
attention to the proposed AG regulations that would make substantive and in
some cases significant changes to NY's version of the FCA.
Since it is likely that Reimbursement, Enforcement and
Compliance committee members (and possibly other sections of the NYSBA) are
likely split on these proposed changes, the Health Law Section will not be
submitting comments. We did, however, want you to be aware of the
proposed changes and deadline in case anyone wanted to submit their own comments.
The return date is Saturday December 7 which means one has until COB on the
next succeeding work date, or Monday December 9 to make comments.
Most of the information can be found by clicking through
the identified links on the OAG Web site: http://www.ag.ny.gov/whistleblowers/false-claims-act
In addition, you can find the information on the proposed
Rule in the State Reg, starting at page 19: http://docs.dos.ny.gov/info/register/2013/oct23/pdf/rulemaking.pdf
