1 The American Bar Association Criminal Justice Section, Health Law Section the Center for Continuing Legal Education and the National Association of Medicaid Fraud Control Units Present The 13th Annual National Institute on Health Care Fraud 2003 May 14-16, 2003 Green Valley Ranch Resort and Spa Las Vegas (Henderson), NV hours of MCLE credit, including 1.00 hour of Ethics in 60-minute states and hours of MCLE credit, including 1.00 hours of Ethics in 50-minute states have been requested.

2 Program Description Health Care Fraud 2003 is the 13th annual National Institute co-sponsored by the ABA and the National Association of Medicaid Fraud Control Units. The National Institute presents a rewarding educational experience for health care attorneys, regulators, prosecutors, criminal defense attorneys and qui tam/relators counsel. The program draws panelists, facilitators and participants from each of these significant interest groups and it offers unique opportunities to meet and share experiences and concerns in a non-adversarial setting. The National Institute s planning committee is committed to creating a program which advances education, communication, professionalism and discussion of current legal and ethical issues which arise in the health care fraud practice. These issues are addressed in panel discussion and small workshop formats designed to maximize audience participation. A trial practice demonstration leads off the third day of the conference, focusing on the important aspects of the case of U.S. v. Lawrence (D. Colo.). This trial demonstration will cover the unique features of trial practice related to prosecuting or defending a health care fraud case involving an alleged scheme to defraud the Medicare program by a chiropractor utilizing a medical doctor to obtain reimbursement for otherwise non-covered services. The planning committee has also added a number of new panel discussions and workshop topics and will again have separate workshops for defense and in-house counsel, government counsel and Qui Tam/Relators and other plaintiffs counsel. These workshops are designed to allow for these separate interest counsel to freely discuss amongst themselves prosecution, whistleblower or defense strategies in a confidential forum.
