The Fine Print and Strings Attached to CARES Act Funding

$95.00

CLE credits earned: General Credit (WA 1 Law and Legal)

Join Ashley Taylor, Miranda Hooker, Ryan Strasser, and Katie Stark for a discussion of the much-anticipated government enforcement efforts that will stem from the unprecedented disbursement of the Health and Human Services (“HHS”) funding of COVID-19 relief and recovery efforts. This Webinar will analyze the likely areas of future fraud enforcement, including HHS’s newly released “Strategic Plan” for oversight and auditing of fund recipients, particularly in light of HHS’ growing expertise in data analytics to identify fraud, waste and misappropriation using outlier claims data. In light of this evolving enforcement landscape, we will provide proactive steps that companies can take to guard against potential government scrutiny.
