Offering Value-Added Services While Avoiding Prohibited Inducements

Offering Value-Added Services While Avoiding Prohibited Inducements

Tuesday, August 16, 2022 ~ 2:30PM - 3:30PM

Presented by Jeff Baird, Esq. of Brown & Fortunato

The federal Stark physician self-referral statute (“Stark”), the federal anti-kickback statute (“AKS”), and the federal beneficiary inducement statute (“inducement statute”) came into existence when health care was primarily operating under a fee-for-service (“FFS”) model that did not encourage the provision of value-added services to patients, collaboration among providers, nor tie reimbursement to achieving certain metrics.

The FFS model can be costly and inefficient. As a result, third party payors (including Medicare) are pushing health care delivery into a value-add/collaborative care/value-based model. To facilitate the shift of health care towards this new approach, CMS and the OIG modified Stark, the AKS, and the inducement statute with the goal of ensuring that these statutes do not unnecessarily impede the provision of value-added services, nor the transition to collaborative/value-based care.

This program will discuss how a DME supplier can provide value-added services to patients with the twin goals of (i) providing preventative health care and (ii) lowering socio-economic barriers to receiving health care. The program will present examples of value-added services that are legally acceptable, and those that should be avoided. This program will further discuss proper … and improper … collaborative arrangements between a DME supplier on the one hand, and physicians, hospitals and other providers on the other hand. 

PRICE: MEMBER $99.00 | NON-MEMBER $129.00
