It is hard to believe it has been nine months since HHS-OIG published the long-awaited final rule implementing changes to the Anti-Kickback Statute (AKS) safe harbors. The updates provide increased flexibility and protection under the AKS and encourage payors, providers, and other healthcare entities to collaborate to provide value-based care. Last month, we sat down with David Servodidio at healthcare data company Provider Trust for a high-level, business friendly chat about how the changes to the AKS impact health plans and their partners and how plans can start using the expanded safe harbors for value-based care. If you have thirty minutes, we invite you to listen in to the discussion and to share it with your business partners who want to know more about what the expanded flexibilities mean for provider contracting.
