Exclusive: U.S. coronavirus stimulus went to some healthcare providers facing criminal inquiries
Healthcare White-Collar Defense Partner Sam Louis was quoted in a Reuters article about the U.S. government's distribution of $30 billion to bolster the healthcare system during the coronavirus pandemic. That speed resulted in taxpayers’ money flowing to some companies and people facing civil or criminal fraud investigations, according to defense lawyers and others representing more than a dozen firms and people facing such inquiries. The surprise deposit of funds has led attorneys to scramble to warn clients to be ready to return the money.
"There is no such thing as a windfall from the government," Mr. Louis told Reuters.
