How can $3,000 Save Your Company $30 Million?

Government fines are no laughing matter. The latest fine that made headlines was for a staggering $1.5 BILLION. Fines like these go well beyond the cost of doing business. With company budgets shrinking, you can’t afford to make a mistake that could cost your company millions of dollars in fines.

At the Medicaid Drug Rebate Program Summit, we gather USDOJ, HHS, OIG and industry senior in-house counsel representatives to explain who is getting caught, why, and how to avoid actionable behaviors. You might think you’re prepared, but if you haven’t been through an audit, how can you know?

Given the new complexities and number of changes in government reimbursement programs, and consequences for failing to follow and correctly implement these changes, these MDRP Summit sessions will show you if your compliance program covers all the bases:

  • - Timely Updates from the Office of the Inspector General: Sources say the OIG will have some exciting new reports to discuss. The MDRP Summit is your opportunity to get these updates directly from OIG officials so you will know what to focus on in the coming year to ensure compliance that stands up to increasing OIG scrutiny.
  • - Current Criminal and Civil Enforcement Activities to Improve Corporate Compliance: Avoid getting caught in the DOJ’s crosshairs and owing them millions with an update from Marilyn May, Healthcare Fraud Coordinator and Assistant US Attorney with the USDOJ, and a panel of experts who will review lessons learned from 2011-2012 civil and criminal Medicaid investigations and new trends the DOJ is seeing in current investigations
  • - Industry Legal Roundtable: Current Legal Trends Affecting Pharmaceutical Manufacturers: Know how to work with your legal team on compliance issues, saving you both time and money in this first-ever session with Harvey Kaish, VP and Assistant General Counsel at BMS, Sabrina Yohai, Senior Corporate Counsel at Pfizer, and Steven Benz, Assistant General Counsel at Eli Lilly, who will identify best practices in dealing with GP-related compliance issues including changes in laws, policy documentation, and systems.
