The Fraud and Abuse Practice Group (Fraud PG) seeks applications for Leadership Coordinators (LCs). This is a terrific way for interested health care fraud practitioners to become more involved in the Fraud PG.
The Fraud PG offers its 2,400+ nationwide members a variety of resources to stay informed about fraud and abuse enforcement and compliance developments, including:
- Email alerts on enforcement activity and compliance activity;
- 50-state (plus DC) survey of state health care fraud and abuse laws;
- Timely detailed summaries of each Office of Inspector General and Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services Advisory Opinion as issued;
- Member briefings and executive summaries;
- Newsletters containing in-depth analyses contributed by other PG members;
- Tweets providing real-time enforcement and compliance updates;
- Online Practice Corner;
- Online Stark resource page, and the soon-to-be-launched Anti-Kickback Statute resource page; and
- Online webinars and roundtable discussions.
Continuing and expanding on these resources requires tremendous volunteer effort, and last year we relied on the contributions of approximately 200 volunteers. Our LCs provide a key role supporting the efforts of the Vice Chairs by helping to coordinate the efforts of those volunteers so we can maintain our ongoing activities and implement new resources. LCs are selected to serve a one-year term, with the opportunity to develop a greater understanding of the inner workings of the PG and, by extension, AHLA. The LCs also provide input and suggestions for Fraud PG activities.
Any Fraud PG member interested in assuming greater responsibility at the PG level should apply. We encourage longtime AHLA volunteers and new members alike to get involved. Please note, members may only hold one role within the Practice Groups during a given program year. If you currently serve in a leadership role in a Practice Group, Task Force, Affinity Group, or Leadership Development Program, you will not be considered for this opportunity.
To apply, please complete and submit an online application no later than Wednesday, September 3. Specific questions about being an LC can be directed to Chair Laura Laemmle-Weidenfeld
or Vice Chair of Membership Heather O’Shea
We hope to hear from you!
Thanks, Laura, Heather, and the Fraud PG Leadership Group
