How New Kickback Rules Benefit Health Care Industry: Part 1

Mintz Member and Chair of the firm’s Health Law Practice Karen S. Lovitch and Associate Rachel E. Yount co-authored a two-part Law360 expert analysis series that examined key provisions of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ final rules amending the regulations implementing the Anti-Kickback Statute (AKS), the Physician Self-Referral Law — commonly known as the Stark Law — and the civil monetary penalty rules regarding beneficiary inducements, and provided practical examples of how the industry can take advantage of these significant changes.

Part one of the series focused on the final rules' many changes to promote the health care industry's transition to value-based care, including three new AKS safe harbors and four new Stark Law exceptions that offer protection for value-based arrangements.
