OIG and CMS Voluntary Self Disclosures: Risks and Rewards of Self-Reporting, Implications of Stark Law Changes

Webinar (ET)

Anjali N.C. Downs, Member of the Firm, will co-present "OIG and CMS Voluntary Self Disclosures: Risks and Rewards of Self-Reporting, Implications of Stark Law Changes," a live CLE webinar hosted by Strafford. 

This CLE webinar will guide health care counsel on the OIG's Self-Disclosure Protocol (SDP) and settlements under CMS' Self-Referral Disclosure Protocol (SRDP). The panel will also outline guidance for evaluating the risks and rewards of disclosing potential violations.

Counsel to health care providers must understand these and other potential tools for resolving Stark Law or Anti-Kickback Statute violations, with each pathway presenting its own advantages and disadvantages.

The panel will explain the pros, cons, and procedural steps for disclosing under OIG's SDP or CMS' SRDP. The panel will discuss effective approaches for evaluating whether to self-report violations and for achieving favorable outcomes.

Topics include:

  • What factors should health care providers consider when determining whether and when a potential Stark law or AKS violation should be disclosed?
  • Which vehicle should health care providers use when making a self-disclosure — SDP vs. SRDP?
  • What are best practices for health care providers and their counsel when preparing the SDP or SRDP disclosure submission?
