The Health Care Compliance Association (HCCA) has invited Ryan Stumphauzer to speak at its Annual Compliance Conference at the Aria Hotel in Las Vegas from February 17-20, 2016. Mr. Stumphauzer will speak on a panel addressing "Criminal and Civil Health Care Fraud." Mr. Stumphauzer, along with co-panelists Jeffrey Dickstein of Phillips & Cohen and Amy Easton from the U.S. Department of Justice, will address recent trends in government health care fraud enforcement, including the government's seemingly increased focus on so-called "medical necessity cases." The panelists will discuss how the False Claims Act, Civil Monetary Penalty Law, and federal criminal health care fraud statutes can be used to impose significant sanctions on institutional providers in circumstances where their employed physicians and health care professionals routinely perform medical procedures that are not designed to improve the health or functioning of the patient, but are instead performed because of financial motives. The panellists will also summarize and discuss the facts of several recent cases where the government has brought an enforcement action based on alleged lack of medical necessity.
