Holder and Sebelius in Detroit, MI
On March 15, 2011, US Attorney General Eric Holder, Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS) Kathleen Sebelius and Inspector General Daniel Levinson visited Detroit to participate in the fifth regional health care fraud prevention summit. These summits bring together a wide array of federal, state and local partners, beneficiaries, providers and other interested parties to discuss innovative ways to eliminate fraud within the U.S. health care system. The summit was closed to the public with a limited number of attendees invited to participate. Robert S. Iwrey of The HLP was honored to be selected to attend and was able to speak with numerous federal, state and local law enforcement officials regarding the need to protect the rights of legitimate providers when attempting to eliminate the fraudulent activities of a few bad actors.
