This is part of an ongoing effort by the various branches of state government to cash in on the huge fines being collected under the False Claims Act. It all starts with AMA Ethics Opinion 8.032. Stark Law converted this to a federal offense, actionable under the False Claims Act. Now, Oregon appears to have established a fund to dig up a way to fine doctors, in hopes that the Oregon DOJ can fund itself with the fines. The BEST they could come up with is that the doctors didn't work for free when teaching others how to safely install the devices? Seriously? That's the best they could do? AMA Ethics were never meant to form the basis of a fines that's why they are termed "opinions" not rules.
