Bass, Berry & Sims attorney Brian Roark was interviewed for an article in Becker’s Hospital Review and identified five trends that will impact False Claims Act (FCA) recoveries in 2016. Several case rulings from 2015 and a shift in government focus has the potential to allow for continued financial recoveries in the coming year, especially within the healthcare industry.

The five trends outlined in the article include:

  1. Use of extrapolation
  2. Focus on physician compensation
  3. Spotlight on individual liability
  4. Disclosure of overpayments
  5. Recognition of implied certification

The full article, “5 False Claims Act Trends, Cases that Will Fuel Recoveries in 2016,” was published by Becker’s Hospital Review on January 6, 2016 and is available online.
