On March 23, 2010, the landmark health care legislation, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), was signed into law. It is already having an impact on how the government pursues fraud and abuse matters in the health care arena. In this six-minute video, two Arnold & Porter partners in the FDA and Healthcare practice provide a snapshot of several key PPACA provisions. This overview includes a high-level discussion addressing the government’s fraud and abuse budget, changes to CMP provisions, the new “private disclosure bar” provision in the False Claims Act (FCA), the rules on the return of Medicare overpayments, and the new Medicaid mandatory exclusion rules.
In coming weeks Arnold & Porter attorneys will provide additional snapshots on other impacts of the health care reform legislation. We hope you find these videos helpful. We welcome suggestions for additional discussions or areas of focus.
