Health Care Cos. Should Beware DOJ's Use Of Travel Act
Healthcare and Life Sciences attorneys Jenna Bigornia, Jonathan Halpern and Ilenna Stein published an article to Law360 on the U.S. Department of Justice’s (DOJ) decision to perform federal healthcare prosecutions under the Travel Act affecting doctors, hospitals and other healthcare spaces. The Travel Act will help the government extend its efforts to reach private insurance matters, aside from Medicare and Medicaid. The article includes examples of improper healthcare referral practices involving the Forest Park Medical Center (FPMC). Healthcare companies and providers should review their structure arrangements and draft corresponding agreements to protect themselves under state and federal laws.
