Event Synopsis:

Soaring budget deficits have put healthcare under intense scrutiny and subjected an entire industry to a national debate. Providers are increasingly turning to their advisors to help mitigate the risk of fraud and abuse in healthcare as increased government attention and significant legislative and regulatory reform have made the legal landscape more complex than ever.

The panelists will address key topics, including:
• Preparing company spokesmen: potential pitfalls and strategies to mitigate risk
• Identifying risks and benefits from proactively approaching the government, including HHS-OIG or DOJ
• Managing senior executive risk in light of recent government guidance and enforcement activity
• Addressing emerging issues in the assessment and valuation of litigation or enforcement risk
