Legal Briefs - False Claims Act Liability for CRNAs Related to Medical Direction


It has never been a secret to Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists (CRNAs) that anesthesiologists are often not able to consistently comply with all of the requirements of TEFRA (Tax Equity and Fiscal Responsibility Act of 1982, Pub. L. 97–248).

This was all but acknowledged in a recent article in Anesthesiology. Throughout it all, CRNAs’ focus has remained on their primary responsibilities: the actual administration of anesthesia and the welfare of the patient.
