The Statute and the regulations only tell part of the story. Because the Anti-Kickback Statute is so broad it what it proscribes, healthcare organizations, conducting what would be normal marketing activities in other industries, have run afoul of the statute on numerous occasions. This program will review not only the Statute and its safe harbors but will provide an in-depth overview of OIG guidance and advisory opinions dealing with marketing activities, as well as a review of case law regarding marketing behavior.

If your organization, be it a hospital, physician practice, DME provider, or any other provider offering healthcare services or supplies, engages in marketing its product or services, care must be taken to ensure that the organization does not run afoul of the anti-Kickback Statute.
