Provider Alert: Department of Justice to Target Executive Compensation to Curb Healthcare Fraud and other Corporate Crime

Urine drug testing is commonly used in healthcare practices to ensure patients are compliant with their medication and not diverting or abusing medication and illicit substances. Many states have implemented drug testing requirements that providers must follow.
