Stark Law, Anti-Kickback Law & Other Referral Laws

We assist health care clients in analyzing proposed transactions with referring physicians to minimize risks under federal and state statutes and regulations limiting referrals of patients whose care is paid for in whole or in part by Medicare, State Medicaid programs and other programs using government funds. These include the Federal Stark Law, as interpreted under the extensive regulations promulgated by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, and the Federal Anti-Kickback Law and the extensive safe harbor regulations under it promulgated by the HHS Office of Inspector General.
