Litigation partner Ryan Fawaz and associate Christopher Maciel will present "Pain (Mis)Management: Recognizing, Deterring, and Pursuing Provider Fraud Schemes Across the Pain Management Continuum" at 1:00 p.m. (PT) on Wednesday, April 14. They will address the widespread and pervasive recent trends in fraudulent claims activity involving pain management, including unnecessary opioids and topical compounds, drug testing, and injections. Special attention will be paid to both the medicine behind these procedures, as well as the billing devices providers use to implement their schemes. They will discuss how to identify improbable patterns in claims activity, as well as effective claims handling and litigation strategies to deal with this activity.
