Description

Training Options  Duration: 60 Minutes

Overview:The presentation will provide an overview of the Federal Stark and Anti-Kickback laws and corresponding regulations including the history and purpose of these laws. The presenter will provide the background upon which these laws were determined to be necessary and developed. The attendees will be provided with an overview and description of the laws, why they were instituted, what they do and do not cover and who they are and are not applicable to.

 

Once the basic constructs of the laws themselves are reviewed, the presenter will then go over the most common exceptions to these laws. Exceptions include specific scenarios in which the law allows physicians, practices and providers to participate in activities that may otherwise be deemed prohibited under both laws. 

 

Attendees will learn how these laws are different and why, even though they are different, they are very often “lumped” together and referred to simultaneously. Moreover, attendees will get a brief overview of how these laws may interact with other laws and regulations and guidance on how to interpret similar state laws in the overall context of the federal requirements. 

 

The presenter will go through several common examples of the most frequent scenarios that get physicians in trouble under these laws including, subleasing, leasing from other physicians, laboratory partnerships, accepting gifts from colleagues or contractors, contractor agreements and more! 

 

Do not become a statistic! You are not working hard to build your practice to end up losing it all – attendance at this webinar will provide a core understanding of what is required of physicians, health care providers, practices and ancillary services providers and attendees will leave with a strong understanding of what is good in their practice, and what may need to be modified immediately. 

 

Why should you Attend: Physicians, health care providers, practice managers and anyone who works in for or with a medical practice of any kind can gain valuable knowledge about the “red flags” of fraud. Red flags can be anything from unusually high volume of reimbursement to unclear division between two separate medical practices functioning in the same space.

 

Fraud can result in a thriving medical practice suddenly becoming a recipient of the Federal Prison Retirement Plan and this concerns all members of the practice, not just the physicians. In recent headlines, we have all seen physicians, laboratory owners, practice managers and billers being walked out of various offices in handcuffs.

 

This is not what you want your practice to be famous for. Medical practices, physicians and health care providers cannot accept payment for referrals, but do you know what the federal government considers a “payment for a referral”? If you have a sublease that is not in writing, or is not quite for fair market value, you may be giving/receiving a kickback.If you take a colleague to lunch and pick up the bill, you may be giving/receiving a kickback. When it comes to federal law, ignorance is not bliss and is certainly not an excuse or a defense when caught in the crosshairs of the federal Stark or Anti-kickback laws. Educate yourself and protect yourself.
