False Claims Act and Antitrust-DOJ Double-Barrel Shotgun? (On-Demand Webinar)
Overview: The False Claims Act and the antitrust laws are two of the most powerful weapons that the U.S. Department of Justice wields to recover monetary damages on behalf of the United States. The Justice Department has especially used these laws in the health care industry. In the last fiscal year, 2.6 billion dollars of the 3 billion dollars that DOJ recovered in FCA matters came from the health care industry. Similarly, the Antitrust Division has recently announced multi-million dollar criminal penalties against drug manufacturers and health care providers. Increasingly, the Justice Department is seeking FCA and antitrust damages in the same matter. This webinar discusses the intersection of these enforcement tools, policies that companies should adopt to guard against FCA and antitrust violations, and what companies should do if confronted with allegations of FCA or antitrust violations. The webinar also covers the history of criminal antitrust enforcement in the health care sector and highlight emerging trends towards greater criminal enforcement against providers and other health care industry participants.
