Paul Fishman, United States Attorney for the District of New Jersey, will address the Seton Hall Law community on “Why Prosecuting Health Care Fraud is a Top Priority in New Jersey.” The public lecture will be provided free of charge on Thursday, September 23, at 6:00 p.m at the Law School.
Since taking office in 2009, U.S. Attorney Fishman has restructured the Criminal Division, appointing new leadership and creating new units, including the Health Care and Government Fraud Unit, which is tasked with investigating and prosecuting crimes involving fraud and abuse in the healthcare industry. The unit will focus on major fraud and abuse against the Medicare, Medicaid and Veterans Administration programs, including the sale of unapproved or altered drugs, illegal kickbacks, improper billing, and improper diversion of controlled substances.
