The Self-referral Disclosure Protocol (SRDP) permits health care providers to voluntarily disclose violations of the federal physician self-referral law, also called the Stark law. Emily Wein has presented a webinar discussing the background of the SRDP, requirements for participation, and the opportunities it affords to health care providers.
In This Presentation:
OIG’s Self Disclosure Protocol:
• Established in 1998 by the Office of Inspector General (OIG)
• Open and cooperative process for health care providers’ resolution of potential fraud (anti-kickback)
• Technical payment errors are outside scope of protocol
• Demonstrates diligence and good faith
• Lesser sanctions expected
• No Corporate Integrity Agreement (CIA)
• No settlements less than $50,000 for anti-kickback violations
• 2009 – no longer accepted disclosures of only potential Stark violations – will accept if connected to anti-kickback issues
