OIG ISSUES FRAUD ALERT WARNING OF ANTI-KICKBACK LIABILITY FOR
CERTAIN PHYSICIAN COMPENSATION ARRANGEMENTS

On June 9, 2015, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' Office of Inspector General (OIG) posted a new Fraud Alert to its website
(http://oig.hhs.gov/compliance/alerts/guidance/Fraud_Alert_Physician_Compensation_06092015.pdf) cautioning physicians who enter into compensation arrangements, such as medical directorships, that such arrangements may violate the federal Anti-kickback statute if steps are not taken to ensure that payments reflect fair market value for the bona fide services that the physician actually provides.
