Both the Anti-Kickback Statute and Stark law prohibit the exchange of remuneration for patient referrals to Federal health care programs, but there are significant differences. The Anti-Kickback Statute is a criminal statute that requires knowing and willful behavior and applies to referrals from any person for any type of service. The Stark law is a civil, strict liability statute that applies to referrals of certain “designated health services” by physicians and the remuneration between those physicians (or their immediate family members) and entities that provide such designated health services.
