Implied Certification & False Claims Act Liability: Escobar and Beyond

Event Description

Deadline to Register: Wednesday, October 26, 2016

Please note the Minneapolis location for the October 28 Health Law CLE at the Minnesota State Bar Association.

Featured Speaker: 
Laura F. Laemmle-Weidenfeld | Partner, Jones Day (Washington, D.C.)

This program will focus on the Supreme Court's recent opinion in United Health Services v. U.S. ex rel. Escobar and the effect it is expected to have, and has had thus far, on other federal False Claims Act (FCA) cases.  Does the Escobar decision simply confirm the validity of the implied certification theory, as Department of Justice officials have suggested?  Or does it set a new, higher bar for relators and the government in these cases, as many in the defense bar have asserted?  And what types of FCA cases will be most impacted under either interpretation of the law?  The presentation will explore these and similar issues relating to the future of the false certification theory in health care cases.

Lunch provided at 11:30 a.m., Program from 12:00 noon to 1:00 p.m.
