Dallas, TX (PRWEB) October 10, 2017
Sean McKenna, a Health Care & FDA Practice shareholder in the Dallas office of international law firm Greenberg Traurig, LLP, will moderate the American Bar Association CLE webinar "Private Enforcement of Anti-Kickback Laws," Oct. 12.
The program will touch on legal strategies and tactics private payors are using to combat referral, kickback, or other fraud schemes allegedly engaged in by providers who do not accept payments from any federal or state programs. As governmental funds are not involved, false claim statutes and similar anti-fraud measures do not apply, so such schemes are not prosecuted by governmental agencies. Private payors have begun filing suits asserting common law fraud and other theories to combat such arrangements. Panelists will discuss legal theories advanced in these lawsuits, the defense perspective, and significant court rulings. Registration can be found here.
McKenna focuses his practice on healthcare enforcement and regulatory issues, representing individuals and providers under civil or administrative investigation by the Department of Justice, Offices of Inspector General, and Attorneys’ General Medicaid Fraud Control Units, as well as in criminal investigations and matters involving the United States and State Attorneys General. As a former 10-year Assistant United States Attorney, Associate Counsel to the Inspector General, and General Counsel for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, he focuses his practice on matters involving the health care industry and regularly represents clients before Medicare, Medicaid, and commercial contractors. His work includes assisting clients with internal investigations and compliance reviews, as well as advising on compliance with state and federal fraud and abuse rules. He is a frequent invited speaker at national, regional, and local conferences.
