Physician-Vendor Relationships Under Heightened Scrutiny

January 04, 2012
01:00 PM - 02:30 PM

FDA and Healthcare attorney Arianne Callender will co-present on avoiding or minimizing liability under False Claims, Stark, and Anti-Kickback laws in physician-vendor relationships, for this webinar presented by Strafford.

Federal regulators and prosecutors are aggressively pursuing allegations of improper financial relationships between physicians and vendors. Areas of concern include the use of free samples, "sham" consulting and advisory payments, physician gifts and gratuities, and off-label uses of drugs and devices. Physicians found in violation of state and federal fraud and abuse laws can face imprisonment, penalties and medical license revocation.

A panel of healthcare attorneys will address the potential legal pitfalls of common physician-vendor arrangements and best practices for staying in compliance with the law.
