Provider Relief Fund Compliance and Fraud-Avoidance

Originally recorded June 29, 2020.



The HHS Provider Relief Fund offers great potential, and great risk. It is not a blank check – there are complicated qualifying and accounting rules.

HHS guidance on the program changes frequently, often without notice. The terms would be difficult enough to grasp if there weren’t a pandemic to worry about. Keeping up with program details amid today’s distractions is tough and there are potentially devastating consequences for mistakes or compliance failures.

Join us as experts from Hooper, Lundy & Bookman, PC discuss the biggest compliance risks and how to mitigate them. You’ll receive tips on how to avoid the most costly pitfalls, and cover:

  • The most problematic terms and conditions
  • False Claims Act implications
  • How and when do you give money back
  • Attestation requirements

There’s a lot at stake. Watch this webinar to get the latest from the experts. Tell your colleagues. It is that important.

    Who should participate?
    Compliance officers, in-house counsel, & chief financial officers.
