Outlook 2012: Compliance Officers Should Prepare for Long, Strange Trip in Year Ahead

In its annual “Outlook” issue, Report on Medicare Compliance interviewed Nolan Auerbach partner Jeb White about the emerging trends and concerns in Medicare fraud. Mr. White commented on the Justice Department’s increased interest in qui tam actions that solely allege kickback schemes. “In the past, DOJ [was] hesitant to get involved in pure kickback cases,” explained Mr. White. Now, DOJ is interested even when a case involves kickbacks alone, because the health reform law made kickbacks a per se False Claims Act violation, noted Mr. White.
