Professor Krause describes the weapons available to state regulators to address managed care fraud. Although many commentators have focused on recent federal anti-fraud efforts, Professor Krause argues that the states, through the use of a number of existing legal theories, have the most flexibility to combat fraudulent managed care practices.
