On Thursday, August 26 Attorney General Eric Holder and U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius hosted the second regional healthcare fraud prevention summit in Los Angeles, according to a Department of Justice (DOJ) press release.

The gathering—a series of day long summits—brought together a wide array of federal, state, and local partners, beneficiaries, providers, and other parties to discuss innovative ways to eliminate fraud within the U.S. healthcare system.

During the summit, CMS added new enrollment standards that durable medical equipment, prosthetic, and orthotic providers (DMEPOS) suppliers must meet before furnishing equipment to Medicare beneficiaries.
