Besides the Anti-Kickback Statute itself as well as its accompanying regulations, there are numerous sources of guidance that providers can use to help determine potential risks of health care fraud and abuse allegations.  Among these are (i) recent settlements and cases (often publicized by US Attorney’s Offices), (ii) advisory opinions published by the OIG, and (iii) the OIG Work Plan.  In this webinar, we will discuss how providers can make use of these three tools, as well as the substance and content of recent developments that may shed light on particular recommendations or risk areas.
