With in-depth coverage of the Anti-Kickback Law, Stark Law, False Claims Act, and more, this book is a necessity for anyone who needs to understand the intricacies of how fraud and abuse laws are structured and enforced in the health care context, providing a foundation for your work in health law:

As health care and society evolve, so too does fraud and abuse law and governmental enforcement activity. Since the previous edition of this book, the risks relating to fraud and abuse have evolved significantly, for reasons ranging from the proliferation of health care data, to the expansion of the use of technology in health care, to changes in the regulatory scheme resulting from the shift toward value-based payment. Every chapter analyzes the impact of these changes.
