Powers Counsel Christina Hughes will present this week in a webinar hosted by the American Medical Rehabilitation Providers Association (AMRPA).

The webinar, entitled “Arrangements with Physicians and Other Risks:  What You Don’t Know CAN Hurt You,” will cover compliance risks involved in inpatient rehabilitation facility (IRF) arrangements with physicians and vendors, as well as relationships with other facilities whose patients originate from or are transferred to the IRF. Christina will delve into specific risks under the Stark law, the anti-kickback statute, the beneficiary inducement prohibition, and other relevant laws.

The webinar will take place on Wednesday, November 6 at 12:00 pm EDT. To learn more about the webinar and to register, click here.
