As mandated by Section 6409 the ACA, CMS has released its Medicare self-referral disclosure protocol (SRDP). The SRDP sets forth a process to enable providers and suppliers to self-disclose actual or potential violations of the physician self-referral statute (known as the “Stark Act”). Under the SRDP, providers or suppliers would submit all information necessary for CMS to analyze the actual or potential Stark Act violations. The Secretary is authorized to reduce the amount due for violations of the Act based on certain factors, including timely self-disclosure.
