CMS and HHS OIG Publish Proposed Rules on Self-Referral EHR Exception and Anti-Kickback EHR Safe Harbor

On April 10, the HHS Office of Inspector General (OIG) and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) published proposed rules regarding the EHR exception to self-referral prohibitions and the EHR safe harbor under the anti-kickback statute.  The two proposed rules would extend the expiration date for these items and update donated EHR “interoperability” requirements.

The ACR government relations staff are currently reviewing both proposed rules.  Any ACR members interested in providing feedback should contact Michael Peters, Director of Legislative and Regulatory Affairs, at mpeters@acr.org/202-223-1670.
