(Recorded Webinar) Avoiding Anti-Kickback Statute Exposure: Receiving Grants, Below Fair Market Goods/Services, and Other Donations Consistent with the Health Center Safe Harbor

Duration: 60 minutes
Recorded on: 6/20/2024

Receiving grants, below fair market value services, and other donations from health care providers in your community can be an essential and effective means to preserve the health center’s limited financial resources and support the availability of in-scope services. In fact, receiving support from other providers, such as discounted facility leases, may be essential to expanding access into new sites.

While the Anti-Kickback Statute generally restricts such donations, federally-funded health centers have safe harbor protection for certain arrangements where a provider donates items of value, in cash or in-kind, to a health center to support or expand the accessibility, availability, and/or quality of services provided to health center patients. To achieve safe harbor protection, the arrangement must be implemented and documented in accordance with strict guidelines.

This webinar will summarize the safe harbor requirements and provide key terms. This webinar will also provide examples of when applying the safe harbor would present opportunities for the health center to obtain financial support from neighboring providers, as well as when application of the safe harbor would be ineffective to reducing exposure.
