Medicare and state health care programs: fraud and abuse; electronic health records safe harbor under the anti-kickback statute. Final rule



Medicare and state health care programs: fraud and abuse; electronic health records safe harbor under the anti-kickback statute. Final rule



Federal Register 78(249): 79201-79220



In this final rule, the Office of Inspector General (OIG) amends the safe harbor regulation concerning electronic health records items and services, which defines certain conduct that is protected from liability under the Federal anti-kickback statute, section 1128B(b) of the Social Security Act (the Act). Amendments include updating the provision under which electronic health records software is deemed interoperable; removing the electronic prescribing capability requirement; extending the sunset provision until December 31, 2021; limiting the scope of protected donors to exclude laboratory companies; and clarifying the condition that prohibits a donor from taking any action to limit or restrict the use, compatibility, or interoperability of the donated items or services.
