5 Issues that are Keeping Healthcare Compliance Professionals up at Night

Healthcare Financial Management Association (HFMA)

In the article published on April 28, 2023 by Healthcare Financial Management Association (HFMA), Fort Lauderdale managing partner Gabriel Imperato shares his insight on issues related to healthcare compliance including the False Claims Act (FCA), telehealth, and the provider relief fund.

False Claims Act

“The risk of a hospital or a health system getting drawn into one of these whistleblower False Claims Act [FCA] cases is not a remote risk,” said Imperato.

Telehealth and the end of the public health emergency

“While on one hand, federal and state governments want to promote telemedicine, on the other hand, they consider it — with justification — to be a very vulnerable place where fraud is committed,” Imperato said.

The Provider Relief Fund auditing process is a potential source of stress

“There’s inevitably going to be recoupment,” Imperato said. “There could even be cases where the conduct in connection with the funds may involve allegations of false and fraudulent activity.”
