3-hr Virtual Seminar - The Interface Between Medicare and Medicaid, Anti-kickback Statute (AKS), Stark II and the Federal Civil False Claims Act (FCA): Is your Organization at Risk?
This healthcare compliance training will explain how the FCA, the AKS and the Federal Physician Self Referral Law (Stark II) work, the prohibitions, exceptions and safe harbors. It will review recent examples to show how they interface and can potentially impact you/ your organization.
Why Should You Attend:
Recent cases and/or enforcement actions involving the Federal Civil False Claims Act (FCA) as well as the Medicare-Medicaid Anti-Kickback Statute (AKS) and/or Federal Physician Self Referral Law (Stark II) raise serious concerns regarding compliance issues with hospital, physician practices and other healthcare entities. Recoveries under the FCA are at an all-time high, and the percentage of actions involving healthcare organizations has been increasing at exponential rates.
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.
