Bart has arguably the most active healthcare enforcement practice in South Carolina. He has represented numerous healthcare providers in dozens of criminal and civil enforcement investigations over the years. His clients have included hospitals, hospice care providers, nursing homes, durable medical equipment (DME) emergency service providers, doctors, pharmacists and other healthcare professionals. He has also represented CEOs, CFOs, and Board Chairmen of national as well as small healthcare providers. Bart has extensive experience in dealing with senior management and boards of directors. He has successfully defended providers in investigations in involving violations of the False Claim Act, Stark, Anti-kickback, cost reports, upcoding, and bundling.
Bart represents providers in both state and federal criminal and civil enforcement matters. He is proactive yet discreet, understanding the sensitive nature of a criminal investigation to his highly respected clients. Whether the matter is being investigated by the United States Attorney, the State Attorney General, or an investigative agency such as the FBI or the OIG, he has a proven track record. While Bart is best known for his successful courtroom defenses in high profile cases, his biggest wins have come privately, convincing prosecutors and investigators to decline criminal prosecution and quietly close their files.
Bart has had experience while with the Department of Justice and in private practice prosecuting and defending "whistleblower" or qui tam actions involving the Federal False Claims Act. As with other areas of Daniel's white collar practice, he discreetly determines the nature and scope of the problem and advises his clients on the advisability of self-reporting, commencing settlement discussions or mobilizing for trial.
Bart has published extensively on healthcare enforcement matters including his most recent book entitled Health Care Fraud and Collateral Consequences 2nd Edition (2010) and the featured article "Health Care Reform" in the South Carolina Lawyer (September 2010).
Bart has also lectured extensively on healthcare enforcement to attorneys, providers and consultants, as well as government prosecutors, auditors and investigators.
