Statement on Physician Self-Referral and Anti-Kickback Statute Final Rules

By Blair Childs, Senior Vice President, Public Affairs

The Premier healthcare alliance strongly supports the administration’s final rules to modernize the Stark physician self-referral law and anti-kickback statute (AKS). ACO leaders in Premier’s data-driven collaborative and other health system leaders have identified these as critical changes to the Medicare program that create clarity and remove barriers to innovation and quality care.

Among the most critical changes proposed by the administration are thoughtful reforms of the Stark Law to ensure that providers who are engaging in value-based arrangements—from care coordination models to full risk—can coordinate beneficiary care across high-value provider groups and settings. Equally important are the administration’s proposed safe harbors under the AKS and Civil Monetary Penalty rules for beneficiary inducements across all Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services models. These are foundational to providers’ work to engage, manage and coordinate patient care so as to achieve optimal outcomes.

These are positive changes within the scope of the law, we now call on Congress to pass additional reforms to the two statutes, including changing the strict liability nature of the Stark Law. Today, physicians can be penalized for lack of compliance even when the intention of their actions were to provide care in the best interest of the patient.
