Lacktman Comments on HIV Telemedicine Plan Ruling

12 June 2018 mHealthIntelligence News
Partner Nate Lacktman was quoted in an mHealthIntelligence article, “OIG: HIV Telemedicine Program Doesn’t Violate Anti-Kickback Laws,” about a ruling by federal regulators that a health care provider’s plan to offer free telemedicine technology to a county-run HIV-care clinic doesn’t run afoul of anti-kickback laws.

Lacktman said the decision mirrors an earlier ruling by the OIC in which a health system gave free telemedicine equipment to certain community hospitals to establish a telestroke network. The latest decision “focused on how the specific terms of the arrangement include a number of safeguards to reduce the risk of patient steering and kickbacks, notwithstanding the fact that the provider would give free telemedicine technology to the county health clinic,” he said.
