Recent criminal fraud indictments against health care plan service providers highlight the need for plan sponsors and fiduciaries to develop a strategy for combating health care plan fraud. Plan sponsors and fiduciaries - and their legal counsel - must determine “best practices” for credentialing and monitoring service providers, and responding to potential health care fraud or other misconduct by a plan sponsor, fiduciary, service provider and their employees.
This program will discuss:
- Identifying the potential for embezzlement and plan asset misuse, fraudulent multiple employer health plan products, and other selected fiduciary and service provider misconduct;
- Ensuring ERISA bonding and other fiduciary responsibility requirements essential in preventing, detecting and addressing health care fraud by plan sponsors, fiduciaries, service providers and their employees;
- Contracting, credentialing, monitoring, auditing and other risk management practices that minimize these exposures;
- Communicating and working with the Departments of Labor and Justice in investigations and redress of health care fraud.
