Fraud&Abuse Workshop (LAW-719B1-001)
Taught by HHS officials in the Office of Counsel to the Inspector General, this course builds on the two fraud and compliance courses from the first week: Legal Issues in Health Care Fraud and Abuse and Health Care Corporate Compliance and Governance. This course will provide an in-depth examination of how the health care provider community interacts with the Department of Health and Human Services' Office of Inspector General (OIG) on issues of health care fraud and compliance. Class time will be a combination of lectures, group discussions, and participation in resolving hypotheticals based on real world scenarios involving health care fraud and compliance. Specifically, the course will address OIG's involvement in criminal investigations, FCA investigations, exclusion, Corporate Integrity Agreements and Self-Disclosure Protocol issues, OIG Audits, and OIG Evaluations. This is one of three courses focusing on Health Care Fraud and Compliance and can be counted towards a Health Care Fraud and Compliance Certificate from American University Washington College of Law.
Prerequisites: Law students must first have taken a health care fraud and abuse course or a health care compliance course in order to take this course. Non-credit participants who have no experience in health care fraud and abuse or compliance are encouraged to take Professor Scielzo's Health Care Fraud and Abuse course and/or Health Care Corporate Compliance and Governance before taking this course.
