    White Papers

  • Developing an effective policy for handling search warrants and raids (2011) - Due to the highly regulated environment governing entities that operate in the area of health care services, it is more likely than not that organizations are likely to encounter law enforcement whether it is a request for an interview, a subpoena, or the execution of a search warrant. Accordingly, any effective compliance program ought to include a written policy and procedure on how to respond to such events. The following outline will assist in responding to inquiries from government officials. This outline addresses the three primary types of government inquiries: requests for interviews, requests for documents or access, and search warrants. Please bear in mind that any inquiry may be a criminal investigation. A criminal investigation is to be distinguished from a routine audit of claims or inspection conducted by the government.
