GERMANTOWN, Md. — October 6, 2022 — The HealthWell Foundation®, an independent non-profit that provides a financial lifeline for inadequately insured Americans, is honored to announce that its Chief Development Officer, Alan Klein, will moderate the Government Enforcement Trends Impacting Copay Assistance panel during the Copay, Reimbursement and Access Congress to be held October 12 – 14, 2022 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

The panel will take place on Wednesday, October 12, 2022, from 2:15 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. EDT. Joining Mr. Klein for the discussion will be Matt Howatt, Assistant U.S. Attorney, U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, Augustine Ripa, Senior Counsel for Health Care Fraud, Fraud Section, Civil Division, U.S. Department of Justice, and Robert Clark, Esq., Managing Member, ClarkLaw PLLC.

During this timely discussion, panelists will address government oversight and enforcement trends to identify key areas of focus for patient access initiatives. If you will be attending the congress, either in-person or virtually, we hope you will join us for this informative session.

“We are pleased that the conference sponsors continue to recognize the significance of government enforcements related to charitable copayment assistance programs (CPAPs),” commented Alan Klein, Chief Development Officer, HealthWell Foundation. “The impact regulatory compliance has on the industry as a whole and, more importantly, on the patients who depend on CPAPs to access lifesaving medications they otherwise would not be able to afford, must always be paramount. Recent enforcement actions in the CPAP arena are a critical reminder of the legal requirements of efficient, transparent, and compliant operations and of the negative impact non-compliance places on patients.”
