CENTER FOR MEDICARE AND MEDICAID SERVICES PROHIBITS DOCTOR SELF REFERRAL

On August 27, the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) issued final regulations prohibiting physicians from referring Medicare patients for certain items, services and tests provided by businesses in which they or their immediate family members have a financial interest.

These rules protect beneficiaries from receiving services they may not need and the Medicare program from paying potentially unnecessary costs.
