Fraud Alert on Physician Compensation Arrangements
The Office of Inspector General (OIG) has issued a warning that “physicians who enter into compensation arrangements such as medical directorships must ensure that those arrangements reflect fair market value for bona fide services the physicians actually provide.”
OIG recently reached settlements with 12 individual physicians who were subject to liability under the Civil Monetary Penalties Law for improper remuneration under the anti-kickback statute.
