Third Edition of False Claims Act & The Health Care Industry Now Includes a 2020 Cumulative Supplement

  • May, 04, 2020

Published by the American Health Law Association (AHLA), the third edition of False Claims Act & The Health Care Industry is a one-stop source for all legislative and case law developments covering the gamut of potential false claims litigation, across all federal jurisdictions. And now, this edition includes a 2020 cumulative supplement, exploring courts’ more recent reasoning on:

  • Whether a relator can add new claims and defendants after the government declines to intervene
  • Plaintiff’s ability to predicate a False Claims Act action upon subregulatory guidance in light of supervening Supreme Court precedent
  • The government’s increasing propensity to seek dismissal of meritless qui tam actions.

“Author Robert S. Salcido continues to provide such thorough coverage and interpretation of the False Claims Act,” comments Robert Anderson, AHLA’s Senior Director of Publishing. “The 2020 supplement will allow our community to more accurately assess potential exposure to false claims liability and reform company practices to reduce the risk of liability.”

False Claims Act & The Health Care Industry is available to order through AHLA’s store on the LexisNexis website for both members of AHLA and the broader health law professionals community.
