Roger Lewis, a principal in Goldberg Kohn's Litigation Group, recently spoke with Law360 about the FCA risks for not just private equity-owned health care companies, but also private equity firms themselves. 

Private equity firms will regularly acquire several specialty practices that bill at high rates. Those practices are often bundled into so-called physician practice management platforms. Such arrangements can lead to dicey billing practices if investors are focused on other factors like rapid expansion, etc. 

Said Mr. Lewis, "When you roll up a bunch of different practices under a single management structure, the temptation to prioritize profit over medicine would be difficult to resist."
