What will I be able to do on completion?

This session is designed for healthcare executives, physicians and other healthcare providers who participate in and receive remuneration from Medicare, Medicaid, and other federal healthcare programs such as TriCare. The session will provide an overview of the FCA and how it works, the prohibitions of AKS and Stark II, and their available safe harbors. It will also show how violation of the AKS and/or Stark II can raise FCA concerns. In addition, it will provide an assessment of enforcement activities, showing how participants may be at risk. Finally, the session will review recent cases and show how they potentially impact participants.

How will I be assessed?

we will discuss the OIG's Joint Venture Advisory Opinion, where a hospital expands into a related service line by contracting with an existing provider of that service. The OIG has significant problems with such an arrangement. We will also discuss the recent advisory opinion by the OIG regarding Physician-Owned Entities. OIG views PODs as inherently suspect under the AKS because the opportunity for a referring physician to earn a profit, including through an investment in an entity for which he or she generates business, could constitute illegal remuneration under the AKS.
