Abstract

In 2007, the United States federal government recovered $1.54 billion for fraud in the health care industry. The government's unwavering and continuing commitment to enforcement and criminal actions compel the need for a stronger provider understanding of the regulatory framework within which corporate-provider relations must be structured.

This commentary aims to review briefly the need for such education in order to protect providers from legal action and offers a straightforward, proactive compliance approach to optimize patient care and technological innovation while maintaining appropriate remuneration.
