Protecting Against Health Care Fraud: Strategies, Tips and Tricks for Health Care Providers


Learn ways to manage health care fraud risk preemptively and during an investigation.

Healthcare providers have long faced significant risk from fraud enforcement investigations and actions due to the complex regulatory environment in which they operate. These risks have been compounded by the way the healthcare industry was changed by 2020 and the COVID-19 pandemic. This topic will explore the effects of 2020 on the healthcare industry and where it intersects with current and future fraud enforcement trends. The material will cover strategies for healthcare providers to help better position themselves to identify and respond to these risks in the current environment, both in terms of proactive compliance and in responding to investigations.
