Feds Could Get More Aggressive with False Claims Act in 2014
Jan.13.2014 — Modern Healthcare
Troy Barsky, a partner in the firm's Health Care Group, is interviewed by Modern Healthcare to discuss how government investigators are likely to start wielding the False Claims Act even more aggressively than in the past. Barsky says, "the Justice Department's willingness to pursue huge False Claims cases on physician compensation against hospitals is new. In fact, it has created a great deal of uncertainty among providers who also recognize various financial incentives from the [Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services] that favor doctor-integration." Barsky is the former director of the CMS Division of the Technical Payment Policy, Chronic Care Policy Group.
