The U.S. government has changed up its approach to criminal health care fraud prosecutions, joining forces with fiscal intermediaries on the civil side to ramp up investigations, and this new tactic has proven to be a cash cow. Health care fraud prosecutions are up 75 percent since 2007 and, in 2014 alone, netted the U.S. government more than $2.3 billion. In a conversation with Mimesis Law’s Lee Pacchia, Foley Partner Lisa Noller discusses the government’s new approach and what companies can expect for 2015 and beyond.
