The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has issued new forms and procedures for provider self-disclosure of Stark Law violations. The new material is intended to streamline the process that permits providers to self-disclose Stark Law violations. The process is applicable to violations that only implicate the Stark Law. The OIG maintained a different process that can be considered when there are potential civil monetary penalty violations. The new forms and process are mandatory beginning June 1, 2017 CMS encourages providers to begin using the new process immediately.
The new self disclosure procedures can be found through the CMS self referral disclosure page.
