Update: Will Exchanges Treble Your Already Treble Damages?

    December 2014

    Squire Patton Boggs of counsel Thomas E. Zeno, associate Lindsay P. Holmes and healthcare fellow Stanford L. Moore recently published an article in the American Healthcare Lawyer Association’s Health Care Liability & Litigation newsletter.

    After reading the Affordable Care Act (ACA) provision (42 U.S.C.  § 18033(a)(6)(A-B)) aimed at maintaining financial integrity of the health insurance exchanges, one may conclude that the ACA dramatically increased the damages to be imposed for false claims made in connection with the exchanges. This article takes a closer look at the three anti-fraud elements contained in that provision to determine what was actually accomplished.
