(September 12, 2010): Robert W. Liles, Managing Partner at Liles Parker, has been asked to serve as the main speaker at the quarterly DOJ Working Group conference sponsored by the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Western District of Texas. The Working Group consists of Federal civil and criminal Prosecutors, FBI agents, HHS-OIG agents and investigators, MFCU agents and investigators, ZPIC auditors and Investigators and representatives of the MAC responsible for processing Part A, Part B and DME Medicare claims. The session will focus on changes to the False Claims Act, the Federal Anti-Kickback Statute and the Health Care Fraud Statute as a result of the recent enactment of the Health Care Reform Act last March. Mr. Liles will also discuss the concerns of health care providers with current enforcement initiatives.
Since 2001, Mr. Liles has worked in private practice, representing the interests of health care providers in administrative actions (such as ZPIC audits of Medicare claims), civil cases (such as False Claims Act cases), and criminal matters (such as Anti-Kickback allegations).

In early 1997, he was selected to serve as the nation's first National Health Care Fraud Coordinator for the Executive Office of United States Attorneys in Washington, D.C.
Prior to entering law, Mr. Liles worked for many years in the health care industry. He received a Master's in Health Care Administration from Trinity University in 1985. Trinity is recognized as one of the foremost universities in the country for educating and training future hospital administrators. In addition to an M.H.A., Mr. Liles also holds an M.B.A.
