732: Health Care Fraud and Abuse

Credit Hours



This course will examine the three major Federal laws governing healthcare fraud and abuse: the Stark law, the Anti-Kickback Statute, and the False Claims laws.  Students will learn how to navigate through the complex maze of statutes and regulations.  In addition, the public policy concerns which underlie each law will be discussed in great detail throughout the semester.  The goal of the course is to equip the future lawyer with the tools necessary to properly identify healthcare fraud and abuse issues, and to effectively advise their clients on these issues.
