Insurance Coverage for False Claims Act Investigations and Healthcare Regulatory Matters

The largest payer in the United States healthcare industry is the Federal Government. And chances are that a healthcare provider is at some point going to have to deal with the Government concerning a potential violation of one of the many laws and regulations that govern U.S. providers. These matters may take the form of a False Claims Act investigation or lawsuit, a self-disclosed regulatory violation, or a government contractor audit. Clearly, resolving regulatory matters with the Government can be costly. So providers often want to know: To what extent will insurance cover the costs?

On January 29, 2018, King & Spalding will host a 75-minute webinar discussing insurance coverage in the context of False Claims Act investigations and healthcare regulatory proceedings  This webinar will aim to:

  • Dispel coverage-related myths that exist in this area—e.g., that insurance coverage is not available for qui tam investigations and healthcare regulatory violations, particularly those involving billing errors; 
  • Highlight the events during a healthcare regulatory proceeding or False Claims Act investigation that would likely be significant from a coverage standpoint; 
  • Arm attorneys involved in representing providers with information to help them spot coverage issues, which in turn will facilitate effective communication with coverage counsel and protect clients’ interest in pursuing coverage; and  
  • Given the government’s increasing pursuit of liability against individuals at healthcare providers, address whether and under what circumstances D&O coverage may be available for claims against individuals.
