As of Jan. 1 2007 a new provision of the Deficit Reduction Act (originally signed into law Feb 8, 2006) becomes effective.  This is Section 6032, titled “Employee Education About False Claims Recovery.”  It mandates that health care or any company receiving federal health care dollars of at least $5 million are now required to inform employees on how to detect and report fraud to the government.  This may include insurance companies, pharmaceutical companies, medical equipment suppliers, medical practices and physicians, and medical laboratories and pharmacies.  Companies must establish written policies for all of their employees, contractors and agents.
