A team of health care attorneys filed a proposal on Oct. 26 with the Inspector General of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services regarding revisions to the Anti-Kickback Statute and beneficiary inducement provisions of the Civil Monetary Penalties Law to mitigate impediments to implementation of new health care delivery and financing arrangements.

The attorneys based their proposal on discussions with some of the nation’s leading academic medical centers. Through those round table discussions, a consensus emerged that a value-based care and care coordination amendments to regulation could remove undue regulatory burdens for these beneficial arrangements, while incorporating appropriate safeguards against fraud and abuse.

The Ropes & Gray team included health care partner Michael Lampert, health care associate Benjamin Wilson and corporate associate Michael DiMaio (all of Boston).
