Are All ‘Medical Necessity’ Determinations Subject to False Claims Act Liability? Opinions May Differ.

Two federal appellate-court decisions handed down in the past few weeks have generated much speculation about whether “medical necessity” determinations underlying Medicare or Medicaid claims can now be considered “objectively false” — despite conflicting medical-expert opinions — and actionable under the False Claims Act (FCA). The most recent opinion was issued on July 9, 2018, in United States ex rel. Polukoff v.

Yet at sentencing, the court bases its sentence of the defendant not on the $5,000 fraud of which he was convicted but on the $1 million conspiracy for which the judge finds him culpable. Under the federal sentencing guidelines, the dollar amount of a fraud or theft is a primary determinant of the recommended sentence. Although the guidelines sentence is only advisory, the judge is required to calculate and consider it; in this circumstance, a defendant’s sentence could potentially increase from probation to three years. Yet even though the court has in some way contradicted the jury’s verdict, such a result is in many cases allowed under current law. Besides seeming unfair, the ability of prosecutors to use acquitted conduct at sentence may allow them to bring more numerous charges against defendants under…..
