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.

The 5th Annual Competition will focus on several interactions between various health care stakeholders, including hospitals, physicians, drug and device manufacturers 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, exclusion, and the False Claims Act and applicable whistleblower or qui tam provisions
  • Hospital related issues including accreditation, Medicare Conditions of Participation, tax-exempt status, HIPAA, and compliance
  • Payor issues including Medicare Conditions of Payment, audits, coding/reimbursement, and overpayments
  • Challenges associated with new clinically integrated care models, including hospital/physician group alignment, quality-based compensation, and meaningful use of electronic health records
  • FDA-regulated clinical trials and associated compliance issues for clinical trial sites

If you would like more information about the Competition or have any additional questions, please email student coordinator Marco Falvo or Virginia Rowthorn, Managing Director, Law & Health Care Program
