Learn more about this event

False claims are a liability to your practice. Physicians, office managers, coders, and billers need to be aware of False Claim Act rules and regulations, and the criminal and civil penalties associated with filing false claims. The extent of your responsibility regarding a false claim may be surprising. Understanding the rules will enable your practice to take corrective action when false claims are suspect and to develop policies and procedures to mitigate the risk of future false claims.
