Partner Judy Waltz was quoted in a Modern Healthcare article, “Whistle-Blower Worries: Hospitals Likely to See More False Claims Suits Tied to Doctor Compensation,” on November 21, 2015. The article discussed the likely increase of False Claims Act cases alleging Stark violations. Waltz said, “In the past, Stark cases weren’t brought to court as frequently under the False Claims Act. Historically, Stark violations were simply treated as overpayments to be refunded, and the government didn’t spend much time on enforcement.”
