Baumann (of Arent Fox LLP in Washington, DC) presents a general information reference resource for attorneys working in the field of health law that has been revised so as to be current through May 2007, although some material has been updated past that date in order to cover significant new developments, such as the new Stark III regulations issued in September 2007. Following the introduction, nine chapters address federal physician self-referral restrictions; application of the substantive, qui tam, and voluntary disclosure provisions of the False Claims Act in health care prosecutions; practical considerations for defending health care fraud and abuse cases; legal issues surrounding hospital and physician relationships; risk areas in managed care fraud and abuse for government program participants; corporate compliance programs; potential liabilities for directors and officers of health care organizations; disclosure of qui tam suits and investigations; and control of fraud, waste, and abuse in the Medicare Part D Program.
