About the Competition:

The Competition requires teams of 2-3 students to analyze a hypothetical fact pattern involving various interactions between health care stakeholders and entities participating in several health care activities that necessitate regulatory and compliance oversight. The fact pattern will be given to teams the day of the completion, and students will have approximately 1.5 hours to analyze the problem. Teams will then present their findings and recommendations to a panel of practicing regulatory and compliance attorneys. The winner will be announced at the Competition during the celebratory competition luncheon.

Sample Health System Focused Fact Pattern »

The 7th Annual Competition will focus on several interactions between various health care stakeholders, including rural community hospitals, academic medical centers, physicians, private medical practices and related third parties. Specifically, this year’s problem will challenge students to address several areas, including but not limited to:

  • Healthcare fraud and abuse issues, including the Anti-Kickback Statute and applicable safe harbors and exceptions, Stark Law, Civil Money Penalties Act, and the False Claims Act
  • Hospital related issues including credentialing of health professionals, Medicare Conditions of Participation and Conditions for Coverage
  • Challenges associated with telehealth services implementation, payment and reimbursement
