Pete Stark Regrets the Stark "Self-Referral" Laws!

David Whelan was kind to point out a great story he just did at on the Stark anti-kickback laws and the bans on provider "self-referral."

David writes, "Yet in an interview today the Congressman lamented that he ever made this legislative intrusion into medical practices."

This article is a must read!

Great scoop, David!
