Karen Lovitch, Practice Leader of the Health Law Practice of Mintz, Cohn, Ferris, Glovsky and Popeo, P.C., will present a Health Care Compliance Association webinar entitled, “Hot Topics in Laboratory Compliance,” on Wednesday, April 8.
Ms. Lovitch and her co-speaker, Rob Rossi, Senior Vice President and Chief Compliance Officer at Calloway Laboratories, will offer legal guidance while taking into account the operational and business challenges laboratories face in today’s health care enforcement environment. Ms. Lovitch and Mr. Rossi will explore the legal and business risks presented by interactions with health care professionals and other sales and marketing activities, as well as the risks related to out-of-network status, including the collection of amounts owed by patients.
Ms. Lovitch’s practice involves counseling health care clients on regulatory, transactional, and operational issues, including Medicare coverage and reimbursement, the development and implementation of health care compliance programs, and licensure and certification matters. In addition, Ms. Lovitch advises clients on the legal, practical, and fraud and abuse implications of business arrangements and sales and marketing practices. Her experience includes matters related to the anti-kickback statute, the Stark law, state statutes prohibiting kickbacks and self-referrals, and the federal Physician Payments Sunshine Act.
