Title: The Whistleblowers and the Prosecutors: What is in Store for the Healthcare Industry?


Healthcare industry fraud investigations originating under the qui tam whistleblower provisions of the False Claims Act continue to drive U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) healthcare fraud investigations and recoveries. The interaction of whistleblowers with prosecutors has a profound impact on the healthcare sector in how investigations are processed. This luncheon program focused on the mysteries associated with the collaboration of whistleblowers and prosecutors in pursuing fraud investigations against the healthcare industry sectors, and the theories of liability advanced and debated from the whistleblower and prosecutor perspectives. A distinguished and nationally prominent panel of False Claims Act practitioners, relator counsel Frederick Morgan and Mark Kleiman, and government counsel, Assistant U.S. Attorney for the District of Maryland and Health Care Fraud Coordinator Roann Nichols and Assistant U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of California Sara Winslow, discussed the processing of whistleblower allegations under seal and how the interaction with whistleblowers and prosecutors work to advance or decline healthcare fraud investigations.
