The program will include (1) an overview of the laws that may require self-disclosure by providers, including the Anti-Kickback Statute, the False Claims Act, the Stark Law, and more; (2) the process for determining when self-disclosure is appropriate; (3) how to determine the appropriate agency for self-disclosure; and (4) the process for self-disclosing to the appropriate agency.
