Source: Historical transfer data based on KNOMAD Remittances Inflows (2020). Historical foreign direct investment, portfolio investment, and other investment comes from the IMF`s balance of payments (IMF, 2020) and national central bank data and relates to net commitment commitments. The World Bank`s Global Development Indicators (2020) are used to blame for the lack of data on foreign direct investment. COVID-19 projections are based on the combination of historical data with projections from the World Bank (2020) (remittances and foreign direct investment) and FDI (2020) (portfolio and other investments). The persistence of public health and economic crises will continue to deplete domestic public resources in low- and middle-income countries by allocating tax and non-tax revenues. We calculate that in response to the global financial crisis, average tax revenues relative to GDP decreased by 1 percentage point between 2007 and 2010, or 5.8% for a subsample of 113 ODA-eligible countries for which time-series data are available. At present, there is concern that the COVID-19 crisis will further affect national government revenues due to the combined effect of several mechanisms: until the entry into force of the ACA in 2010, the government generally did not include corrective measures for poor performance in contracts. The standard state claims form used by providers, Form HCFA 1500, requires a provider to certify that the services provided to the patient and contained in the application form were “medically indexed and necessary for the patient`s health.” In addition to this explicit certification, the U.S. Supreme Court recently recognized an implicit theory of liability certification, under which a party can be held liable under the False Claims Act when seeking reimbursement for care from a Medicare or Medicaid beneficiary who provides specific insurance about necessary goods or services. but does not knowingly reveal non-compliance with an essential legal provision. regulatory or contractual requirements that make mispresentation misleading with respect to the goods or services provided.

US ex rel Escobar, 136 pp. Ct. 1989 (2016). When a physician files a claim with Medicare Part B for a J-code drug injected into a program recipient, this claim implicitly attests that the physician has complied with all applicable federal laws, including the AKS. However, if the doctor received remuneration from the pharmaceutical company for obtaining his or her prescription for this drug, he or she violated the AKS and the implicit certification on the application form is incorrect. As a result, under the Federal False Claims Act, the physician can be sued for filing a false allegation and be subject to three damages and a fine. The pharmaceutical company that paid the remuneration in violation of the AKS can also be held liable for causing the doctor to make the false allegation. Passed in 1997, the Health and Accountability Act (HIPC) created criminal penalties under U.S. Code 42, Section 1320d-6 for the misuse of patient credentials. Regulations adopted in 2003 and codified as 45 CFR Part 160 et seq. contain a series of complex rules for the use of patient identification information, including the exchange of such information between healthcare providers and their business partners.
