Abstract

State and federal laws shape the ability of an orthopedic group to offer ancillary services, whether through the group practice or as part of a joint venture. The Stark Law, the Medicare Anti-kickback Statute, state anti-kickback and fee-splitting provisions, and various Medicare billing and supervision requirements all have a significant impact on the provision of ancillary services. This article explores the most significant impacts of these laws.
