CodeMap® Compliance Briefing: 02/19/2010
This week's CodeMap® Compliance Briefing discusses the prohibition of offering inducements to Medicare beneficiaries. Most of our subscribers understand federal anti-kickback provisions that prohibit providers from offering remuneration to other providers in exchange for the referral of Medicare and/or Medicaid beneficiaries. However, many providers are less likely to fully understand similar provisions that disallow the offering and/or provision of remuneration directly to the beneficiaries of these programs. The following briefing explains the origins and elements of these beneficiary inducement provisions, as well as explores applicable OIG guidance. Please forward any questions, comments, or suggestions via email.
