DOJ Puts Academic Medical Centers in Spotlight

Nov.29.2012

The settlement, which DOJ hailed as an example of increased cooperation between DOJ and HHS under the Health Care Fraud Prevention and Enforcement Action Team (HEAT) initiative, follows a string of recent cases in which DOJ has targeted higher ed institutions under the FCA.
