(Recorded Webinar) Supporting Patient Transportation

Health centers are required to provide patients with access to transportation services if transportation would otherwise be a barrier to care.  However, a federal law known as the “Beneficiary Inducement Prohibition” places certain limitations on how health centers may structure their transportation programs.  Failure to consider such limitations could expose health centers to costly Civil Monetary Penalties for each violation of the prohibition.  Certain arrangements could also implicate the federal Anti-Kickback Statute.  Fortunately, the Office of the Inspector General issued the Free and Discounted Local Transportation safe harbor to these federal statutes in December 2016.

This webinar will detail health centers’ obligation to provide transportation services to their patients and will assist health centers in developing transportation programs that are complaint with the Free and Discounted Local Transportation safe harbor, whether a health center decides to provide rides to certain individuals, develop a shuttle service, or both.  The webinar will also provide examples of arrangements that fall both within and outside of the safe harbor.
