Abstract:     
Few areas of health law practice present as many quandaries for the ethical health lawyer as health care fraud and abuse. While the importance of complying with these laws is clear, the application of the broad provisions to many real-life health care arrangements is not. This article argue that when exercising judgment in advising clients on these matters, the ethical health lawyer must balance the expansive language of the fraud prohibitions with detailed knowledge of relevant case law and other predictors of how the government is likely to apply them to the activities in question.
