Paying for Referrals: A Danger to your Freedom

Pre Recorded

  • 60 minutes

The session will provide an overview of the Anti-Kickback Statute (AKS) and review what it prohibits, as well as review the Statute’s available safe harbors. It will also show how violation of the AKS can raise FCA concerns, and it will provide an assessment of enforcement activities, showing how participants may be at risk. In addition, the session will review recent cases and show how they potentially impact participants.

Since one of the exceptions to enforcement under the Act is regulations promulgated by the Secretary, the “safe harbors,” payment practices that will not be subject to criminal prosecution and that will not provide a basis for civil monetary penalties or exclusion from the Medicare or Medicaid programs, he will examine these safe harbors, particularly those more frequently used, to show how protection from enforcement can be achieved. Specifically, we will review the investment, space and equipment rental, personal services/management contracts, and physician recruitment safe harbors.

In this webinar expert speaker, William Copeland will provide an in-depth review of the AKS, focusing on what is prohibited under the Act and what the exceptions are. He will also review the case law, particularly the early case law that sets the stage and basis for how the courts interpret the law.

Session Highlights:

  • Federal Civil Anti-Kickback Statute

  • Safe Harbors providing protection under the AKS

  • Enforcement activities involving the AKS

  • The OIG’s Joint Venture Advisory Opinion

  • The OIG’s advisory opinion regarding Physician-Owned Entities

  • The anti-fraud provisions of the Affordable Care Act.

Why You Should Attend:

In this webinar, you will learn about the elements of the Anti-Kickback Statute, along with the various exceptions and safe harbors that you can rely on for protection against enforcement under these laws. This is important because under recently enacted health care laws, enforcement and health care fraud task forces have been greatly enhanced. In addition, the Affordable Care Act (better known as Obamacare), the government has greatly enhanced enforcement resources.

Who Should Attend:

  • Hospital executives, particularly CEOs, COOs, CFOs, CNOs, and CMOs,

  • Nursing home executives,

  • Physicians,

  • Physician practice managers, and

  • Other healthcare provider executives.
