Prevent, Detect and Respond to Fraud and Misconduct
Fraud and misconduct represent a constant danger to your organization. These risks have the potential to devastate your company’s reputation and bottom line and expose your company to legal and regulatory fines, penalties or sanctions. Today’s regulatory environment continues to raise the stakes in a way that threatens your company’s very existence.

The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) allocates significant resources to identifying and prosecuting Medicare and Medicaid fraud and abuse. When these allegations occur, targeted entities are often required to enter into a Corporate Integrity Agreement with the Office of the Inspector General.
As part of this agreement, the organization needs to retain a third-party Independent Review Organization (IRO) with deep healthcare and regulatory compliance experience and an efficient, proven model for performing annual systems and transactions reviews.
Bennett Thrasher serves as the IRO for healthcare, pharmaceutical, and other life sciences entities nationwide and takes a practical, efficient approach to these compliance reviews. As a result of this experience, we have a keen understanding of government requirements and the operational challenges organizations face in maintaining compliance.
Bennett Thrasher believes in serving our clients by building trust through insight and involvement.
