Government Subpoenas, Requests for Information, Oh My!

2014 brought 782 new civil investigations and 904 new criminal investigations related to potential health care fraud. Often the first notice an in-house counsel receives of an investigation is a government request for information, such as by subpoena or civil investigative demand. Taking stock of the situation and responding can be a daunting task with some not-so-obvious components and potential pitfalls. This Quick Hit will navigate you through why you might receive a government information request, what the government is looking for in response, and how to react and ultimately respond. Lori A. Rubin, Associate and Litigation Attorney, Foley & Lardner LLP Tracy Ivers, Associate General Counsel, UnitedHealthcare
