Kickbacks (Inducements)

A "kickback" or an "inducement" is a direct or indirect remuneration that is given to induce or reward referrals of items or services. For example, a provider receives cash or below market value rent for medical offices in exchange for referrals.
The Anti-Kickback Statute (AKS) makes kickbacks a criminal offense.
