HHS IG anti-kickback advisory opinion requests could provoke investigation, attorney advises.

Executive Summary

HHS IG ANTI-KICKBACK ADVISORY OPINION REQUESTS CARRY RISK OF INVESTIGATION to health care providers, health law attorney Ann Berriman cautioned at the American Society of Consultant Pharmacists legislative conference in Washington, D.C. March 17. Health care providers would be "unwise" to provide the information required for an advisory opinion to the HHS inspector general's office, because the HHS office of the Inspector General can use the information to launch an investigation at its discretion, the Baltimore lawyer warned.
