Matthew Krueger Gives Insight Into New DOJ Compliance Certification

25 July 2022 Report on Medicare Compliance News

Foley & Lardner LLP Partner Matthew Krueger was quoted in the article, "DOJ Certification Raises CCO 'Risk Profile'; Consider 'Your Own Due Diligence Checklist,” in the Report on Medicare Compliance, published by the Health Care Compliance Association (HCCA), discussing the potential legal perils Chief Compliance Officers may face when certifying compliance as part of a false claims settlement in light of the new Department of Justice (DOJ) compliance certification.

Krueger noted the importance of companies having a process to assess their compliance programs “well before being in the crosshairs of the DOJ.”

He added, “It’s best to periodically review and test the compliance program against objective standards so if you are in the compliance officer role, you have a basis to give certifications.”
