Know Who You’re Doing Business With! Innocent Vendor Found Liable Alongside Corporate Cheat for Hundreds of Thousands of Dollars in Fraudulent Conveyance Claim
It is not particularly surprising that some individuals will engage in the questionable and risky practice of paying for personal items by using their business/corporate accounts and credit cards. The classic example is a corporate officer who uses his business credit card to take his friends or family out for dinner. It seems preposterous to suggest that the restaurant cashier should conduct due diligence to confirm whether the executive is legitimately entitled to pay for her dinner with a company credit card. But under recent caselaw, that might not be such a bad idea in order to prevent an innocent vendor from getting caught in a web of litigation involving fraudulent conveyances and Bankruptcy law.

Telehealth Audits To Be Added to OIG Work Plan
In response to the increased trend of practitioners providing telehealth services in their practices, the Department of Health & Human Services (HHS)’ Office of Inspector General (OIG) has recently announced that it will be adding a review of Medicare and Medicaid telehealth payments to its 2017 Work Plan. Accordingly, providers who render telehealth, telemedicine or remote patient monitoring services and subsequently bill the Medicare and Medicaid program may be subject to an audit involving a review of claims billed to confirm that payment was appropriately made.

Tax Reform and Physician Consolidation
The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, the recently enacted tax reform law, contains provisions that, while not widely known, may continue, at least in the short term, the trend towards the consolidation of physician practices into hospital systems which was accelerated after the passage of the Health Care Affordability Act ("Obamacare").
