Free Transportation, Gift Cards, and Other Patient Incentives: Activities You Can Do to Promote Health Without Violating Federal Law

May 16, 2018 - 1:00pm ET
Training Details

Historically, federal law has stood in the way of providers offering incentives to patients despite their value as a tool for promoting health and access to services among at-risk and vulnerable populations.  Due to recent changes in federal law, providers can now utilize exceptions under the Beneficiary Inducement Prohibition and offer free transportation, gift cards and other incentives to their patients, and even in some cases, to the provider's potential patients.  Please join Adam Falcone and Daryl Berke as they explain the Beneficiary Inducement Prohibition and its related exceptions as well as provide examples of activities that would be considered permitted incentives under federal law. 

LEARNING OBJECTIVES
  • Explain the general prohibition of patient inducements under federal law; 
  • Detail new exceptions to the general prohibition of patient inducements; and
  • Identify examples of activities that would be permissible incentives under federal law.
