Federal Anti-Kickback Act
How many of you work for a medical group as an independent contractor? Now, how many of you also work for a straight percentage of the patients seen? In other words, you are not getting a W-2 at the end of the year. Well, you may very well be in violation of the Federal Anti-Kickback Act and or your state anti-kickback act. If that is the case, I strongly recommend that you get in touch with a good health law attorney, such as me, immediately. Many providers are simply not aware of this law. Unfortunately, ignorance is not a valid excuse.
