Health Care Partner Co-Authors Article on Physician Owned Distributors and Anti-Kickback Statute Liability for Compliance Today

Practices: Health Care

An article co-authored by health care partner Thomas Bulleit (Washington, D.C.) and former associate Peter Holman examines the regulatory concerns associated with hospitals purchasing from physician-owned distributors (PODs), and was published in the June edition of Compliance Today.

The article details the ways in which hospitals expose themselves to risk under the Anti-Kickback Statute and False Claims Act when arranging purchases through companies owned by practicing physicians, even when the products purchased are intended only for private-pay, rather than Medicare, patients.
