Partner Judy Waltz was quoted in a Bloomberg BNA article, “Trump Budget Would Boost Spending to Fight Medicare, Medicaid Fraud,” covering the ideal return on investment from anti-fraud efforts, and the integrity of the Trump administration’s anti-fraud program as a whole.

Waltz explains that the support for program integrity “is because the [Health Care Fraud and Abuse Control] program has been able to demonstrate a good return on investment, both in actual dollars and in the nonquantifiable deterrent side as well.”

She continues to say that, however, “with the administration’s statements about reducing regulatory burdens, there may be less emphasis on fraud, waste and abuse allegations that reflect regulatory noncompliance [in the future].”
