AHA Comment Letter to OIG Extending the Antikickback Protections for Health IT Donations

AHA's comments on the Department of Health and Human Services Office of Inspector General’s (OIG) proposed rule that would extend the regulatory protections under the federal antikickback law for hospitals that want to provide assistance to physicians in adopting certain health information technology (IT). We support the agency’s decision to extend the protections, which were scheduled to expire at the end of this year, for at least another three years until Dec. 31, 2016.
