While the transition to the Biden administration has ushered in many changes, including new policies and initiatives at the U.S. Department of Justice, one thing that remains constant is the DOJ’s reliance on the False Claims Act as a key enforcement tool.
Global law firm Hogan Lovells has released a new report, False Claims Act Guide: 2021 and the Road Ahead, which looks at key legal developments and how they are likely to impact FCA enforcement in the coming year.
Key topics covered by the FCA Guide include:
- Healthcare digitization: The implementation of electronic health records and rapid expansion of telemedicine bring heightened enforcement risks.
- Cybersecurity: The DOJ has intensified its scrutiny of the cybersecurity practices of government contractors and grant recipients.
- The Cares Act: Following the $2 trillion in relief provided, we expect to see an uptick in FCA activity as enforcement officials scrutinize the acceptance and use of these funds.
