The last week has been busy for telemedicine-related enforcement. On July 20, the U.S. Department of Justice announced a $1.2 billion enforcement action focusing on so-called telemedicine fraud and related areas. And on the very same day, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services-Office of Inspector General released a “Special Fraud Alert” regarding telemedicine companies and healthcare practitioners.

The upshot of both these developments–and ongoing, significant enforcement activity in general–is that telemedicine-related matters remain a prime focus of regulators and prosecutorial agencies, with little sign of slowing down.
