Activity on physician self-referral, in particular efforts regarding the exceptions to the in-office ancillary services (IOAS) exception to the Stark self-referral laws, has ramped up this year, and APTA has new online resources to help members understand federal self-referral efforts and get involved.
New on APTA's Self-Referral webpage:
You’ll also find APTA's position paper on self-referral, news items, and links to the Government Accountability Office reports that implicate financial incentive in physical self-referrals to prostate cancer radiation therapy, advanced imaging, and anatomic pathology services. (A fourth report, on self-referral in physical therapy, is due this fall and will be posted here as well.)
