Every health care attorney must consider and address potential fraud and abuse concerns in connection with almost every transaction contemplated by a health care client.

Best Practices Handbook for Advising Clients on Fraud and Abuse Issues is a concise guide developed by expert health lawyers with extensive and diverse experience. The authors weigh in on the complex representation issues that health care attorneys
commonly confront in the realm of fraud and abuse:
  • Ethical concerns when counseling in “gray areas”
  • Privilege protection in fraud and abuse matters
  • Providing a “fraud and abuse” opinion of counsel
  • The attorney’s role in conducting internal compliance audits and investigations
  • Self-disclosure and voluntary disclosure
  • Gathering documents in response to government demands
  • Interacting/communicating with employees and potential witnesses
  • Issues for an attorney to consider in resolving disputes with the government
The Handbook also includes sample documents that readers can use to address many of the issues discussed in this book.
The authors’ practical insights will be invaluable to a broad range of attorneys—from the general health care attorney to the fraud and abuse specialist—working in this dynamic high-risk area of the law.
