Product Description

Recent OIG settlements indicate that the government may come down hard on non-compliant gift giving that bestows even small value to referring parties. 

Courtesies like gifts or discounts may express appreciation, but can also implicate federal and state laws pertaining to kickbacks and self-referral prohibitions.

You are expected to have a gift and discount policy and fully document gifts and their value. Regulators are on the lookout.

Join nationally known healthcare attorney Wayne J. Miller, Esq., for this 90-minute seminar. Wayne will highlight the current standards for providing legal gifts and discounts. He will take a close look at considerations for gift and discount policies and will discuss the type of documentation and other support needed to support gift giving and discounting.

Topics to be covered include:

  • Find out if gifts can be provided to staff, colleagues, their families or current or former patients
  • Get the scoop on what type of gift and what amount of gift is permitted
  • Why it’s necessary to have a consistent discount policy for all patients
  • Learn the current rules on how to reflect discounts in claims processing
  • Can you offer discounts for upfront cash payments, or for rapid payment?
  • Resolve gifts that exceed permitted standards
  • Meet fraud and abuse and self referral law documentation standards
  • Case studies and their implications on enforcement actions and settlements
