PROFITEERS—White Collar Crime in Healthcare: A National Crisis

The health care industry is the largest single industry in the U.S. economy.  Our health care delivery system is relentlessly evolving in response to a changing economic and political landscape.  So lucrative is the field of health care, that organized criminals and con artists have gotten into the business of fraud in health care.  Enamored with greed and what is often perceived as risk free payoffs, fraudsters have found many holes in the system and have manipulated a fraud triangle with patient brokering across state lines from coast to coast.  Kickbacks, false claims, and money laundering prevail and lead to fraudulent medical treatment being delivered and submitted for reimbursement—all of which exacerbates the crises of addiction in our country.

“Profiteers” workshop will demonstrate that fraud in not a a theft of force, but rather it’s a theft by deception and trickery.  Fraud is a human act in which the mind plays a crucially important role.  We will explore the mindset of some bad actors committed to sustaining fraud in the corporate arena--differentiating between the white-collar psychopath vs. the sociopath.  After all, not all psychopaths end up in prison, some thrive in business and end up in the C-Suite.

Case highlights: South Florida Health Care Facility Owner Sentenced to 20 years In Prison for Role in Largest Health Care Fraud Scheme Ever Charged  by the Department of Justice (Sept. 12, 2019).

CPE:  2 hours.

The webinar information (url and login) will be sent to participants a few days in advance.
