The Fraud and Compliance Forum is jointly sponsored by the Health Care

Compliance Association (HCCA) and the American Health Lawyers Association

(AHLA). It will include an explicit designation of a session as “compliance

focused” or “legal focused.” The Planning Committee has included enough

sessions in each designation that an individual could attend all “compliance”

sessions or all “legal” sessions for the entire program. Yet an attendee also

has the option of selecting a diversity of sessions and networking with an

expanded group of individuals. The Fraud and Compliance Forum has the ben‑

efit of combining the quality of HCCA and AHLA sessions with the expanded

networking power of a combined program.

Program Agenda

PROGRAM MISSION

The AHLA/HCCA Fraud and Compliance Forum will provide practical

guidance on the pressing legal and compliance issues that have

arisen in the last twelve months. The program’s uniqueness stems not

only from the important content for health lawyers and compliance

officers, but also from the additional value of bringing together legal

counsel and compliance officers in one educational arena. The Fraud

and Compliance Forum is jointly sponsored by the Health Care

Compliance Association (HCCA) and the American Health Lawyers

Association (AHLA). It includes an explicit designation of each session

as “compliance focused” or “legal focused.” The Planning Committee has

included enough sessions in each designation that an individual could

attend all “compliance” sessions or all “legal” sessions for the entire

program. Yet an attendee also has the option of selecting a diversity of

sessions and networking with an expanded group of individuals.
