Anti-Kickback Statute

Last Updated on August 28, 2018

There are criminal penalties for individuals or providers that knowingly and willfully offer, pay, solicit, or receive remuneration (payment) in order to induce or reward businesses payable (or reimbursable) under Medicare or other federal health care programs. In addition to applicable criminal sanctions, an individual or provider may be excluded from participation in the Medicare and other federal health care programs and subject to civil monetary penalties. For purposes of the anti-kickback statute, “remuneration” includes the transfer of anything of value, directly or indirectly, overtly or covertly, in cash or in kind.
