Conduct of Donors Thus far, this Supplemental Bulletin has focused on the conduct of Independent Charity PAPs. Similarly, when we have issued favorable advisory opinions regarding Independent Charity PAPs, the focus has been on the charities that requested the opinions—not the donors.11 In requesting an opinion, a charity certifies to actions it will take to ensure the independence of the PAP from the donors. The charity is not in a position to certify as to the actions of the donors with parties outside the arrangement. For example, an advisory opinion issued to an independent charity regarding the PAP it operates typically states that the charity has certified that it will provide donors only with reports including data such as the aggregate number of applicants for assistance, the aggregate number of patients qualifying for assistance, and the aggregate amount disbursed from the fund during that reporting period. Thus, the charity would not give a donor any information that would enable a donor to correlate the amount or frequency of its donations with the number of aid recipients who use its products or services or the volume of those products supported by the PAP. The procedures described in these certifications are a critical safeguard and a material fact upon which we have relied in issuing favorable advisory opinions regarding Independent Charity PAPs. These opinions do not address actions by donors to correlate their funding of PAPs with support for their own products. Such actions may be indicative of a donor’s intent to channel its financial support to copayments of its own products, which would implicate the anti-kickback statute. IV. Conclusion OIG continues to believe that properly structured, Independent Charity PAPs provide a valuable resource to financially needy patients. We also believe that Independent Charity PAPs raise serious risks of fraud, waste, and abuse if they are not sufficiently independent from donors. This Supplemental Bulletin reiterates and amplifies our guidance, based on practices and trends we have seen in the industry. We recognize that some charitable organizations with PAPs have received favorable advisory opinions 11 An advisory opinion has no application to, and cannot be relied upon by, any individual or entity other than the requestor of the opinion. Thus, a donor is not protected by an advisory opinion issued only to the entity to which it donates. See section 1128D(b)(4)(A) of the Act (42 U.S.C. 1320a– 7d(b)(4)(A)); 42 CFR 1008.53. VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:23 May 29, 2014 Jkt 232001 that may include features that are discouraged in this Supplemental Bulletin. We are writing to all Independent Charity PAPs that have received favorable opinions to explain how we intend to work with them to ensure that approved arrangements are consistent with our guidance. We anticipate that some opinions will need to be modified. We will post any such modifications on our Web site with the original opinions, consistent with our current practice. Favorable advisory opinions will continue to protect the arrangements described in the opinions until we issue any final notice of modification or termination to the requestors of those opinions. It is our intent that there be no disruption of patient care during this process. Should donors or PAPs continue to have questions about the structure of a particular organization or transaction, the OIG Advisory Opinion process remains available. Information about the process may be found at: http:// oig.hhs.gov/faqs/advisory-opinionsfaq.asp. Dated: May 16, 2014. Daniel R. Levinson, Inspector General.
