"HEALTH CARE FRAUD REPORT" FROM BUREAU OF NATIONAL AFFAIRS.

The Bureau of National Affairs (Washington, D.C.) has begun the publication of Health Care Fraud Report newsletter. An annual subscription to the letter, published every other week, costs $695.

BNA said the new publication is designed to be a notification service focusing on health care fraud and abuse in the private insurance industry, managed care organizations, and federal health care programs such as Medicaid, Medicare and Champus. It will provide readers with "pointed direction in complying with the maze of new fraud and abuse laws and regulations," BNA said.

Editorial includes news and analysis of such issues as: federal health care and anti-fraud initiatives from the HHS Inspector General, the Department of Justice and the FBI; Congressional legislation and hearings on fraud and abuse; and legal decisions and settlements stemming from federal and state actions against providers. In addition, the letter includes information on membership initiatives to fight health care fraud as set forth by the major health care associations such as the National Health Care Anti-Fraud Association, American Medical Association and the Health Insurance Association of America.

BNA said the newsletter also carries analysis by outside "experts" on fraud and abuse matters and trends, coverage of national conferences and the full text of settlements, regulations, advisory bulletins, and compliance programs, actions of the Medicaid Control Fraud Units, state and government initiatives, and HHS IG's Operation Restore Trust program, currently operating in five states.
