The ABA and Drinker Bidde cordially invite you to a panel discussion of increased fraud enforcement efforts in the medical device industry. The U.S. Department of Justice has once again made fighting health care fraud a top priority and has increased the resources devoted to the effort. Meanwhile, news headlines over the past several months have trumpeted indictments and convictions of medical device executives and record-breaking health care fraud settlements, such as a $2.3 billion settlement agreed to by a major pharmaceutical manufacturer.
Join this diverse panel consisting of a federal prosecutor, a relator’s counsel, a medical device compliance officer, and a defense attorney, for an analysis of what’s happening and what device manufacturers can expect. The panel will address emerging enforcement theories and defenses, recent indictments of individuals, and life after settlement, among other topics.
