We, at Reed Smith, advise virtually every type of health care entity on federal and state anti-kickback laws; physician self-referral restrictions, including the “Stark Law’s” prohibitions and exceptions; restrictions on beneficiary inducements; the federal False Claims Act; and other civil and criminal laws.
Our coordinated team seamlessly conducts legal audits of existing contracts and operations, and develops tailored, comprehensive compliance programs. We can also provide you with counsel regarding regulatory and legislative developments and regularly submit requests for advisory opinions from federal regulators.
