Fraud and Abuse Laws:
Reimbursement for OMNI products may come from Federal Health Care programs such as Medicare or Medicaid. As a result, specific federal and state fraud and abuse laws including but not limited to: the Federal Anti-kickback Statute (“AKS”); Foreign Corrupt Practices Act; False Claims Act; Federal Physician Payment Sunshine Act; and equivalent state laws apply and govern OMNI and its employees, agents, contractors and other entities that conduct business with OMNI.
Our Compliance Department assists with and monitors OMNI’s interactions with any health care professional or individual involved in the provision of health care services of any kind, to effectuate compliance with the aforementioned laws and regulations.
OMNI enhances the quality of people’s lives by providing innovative products that respond to, and improve upon, existing implants’ clinical or surgical limitations. An integral part of this process is collaborating with our trusted orthopedic surgeon consultants. We rely on our consultants to provide the insight and expertise necessary to deliver cutting edge solutions and ensure patient safety.
OMNI may engage a surgeon consultant for a variety of business needs including: consulting, research, product development, education or training, for which they may receive compensation. Our compliance policies govern and document this process from start to finish to ensure that all collaborations with surgeons are in furtherance of legitimate OMNI business needs.
