Health Care Fraud and Abuse
Lane Powell Shareholders Steve Ungar and Darin Sands co-authored the “Health Care Fraud and Abuse” chapter in the Oregon State Bar’s Health Law in Oregon, an upcoming guide to the laws and regulations surrounding health care in Oregon. In their co-authored chapter, Ungar and Sands familiarize attorneys with defending actions and managing investigations in which the putative defendant or target is alleged to have violated one or more of the many federal and state laws regulating the provision of health care services. The list of possible defendants includes most participants in the health care sector of the economy. According to the guide, health care participants and their attorneys must understand the laws and regulations that govern their business, and they must react quickly and seriously to defend against any potential liability. Special thanks was also given to Lane Powell Attorney Kristen Tranetzki for her contributions to this chapter.
