Medicare provider gives away $20 grocery cards to lure patients


The Department of Health and Human Services has given qualified approval for a Medicare provider to give away $20 grocery gift cards to induce seniors to get more taxpayer-funded health screenings, despite concerns the promotion could run afoul of federal anti-kickback laws.

The HHS inspector general, the agency’s internal watchdog, gave the OK in a little-noticed advisory opinion earlier this year, declaring it would not punish the provider’s good intentions even if the giveaway strayed into questionable legal territory.
