Mintz’s Health Care Enforcement Defense team has produced a comprehensive overview of the key policy issues, statistics, settlements, and court decisions related to health care fraud enforcement in 2020, along with predictions about enforcement activity in this area in 2021 and beyond. We reviewed statistical data published by the Department of Justice (DOJ), our internal database of health care–related qui tam cases, DOJ enforcement actions, and significant federal agency actions and guidance connected to health care enforcement.

Our report provides an in-depth look at statistical trends in civil False Claims Act litigation in 2020 and the government’s health care fraud enforcement priorities last year, which included matters involving opioids, COVID-19 related fraud, and Medicare Advantage, among others. It also discusses major agency guidance over the past year and concludes with a summary of how we expect health care enforcement to evolve over the coming year under the new Biden administration.
