      The Administrator I work for has said that Medicare has rules that opticians cannot get our lab lenses, no vendor frames, NO incentives can be received or accepted. I sell lenses that I haven't even tried myself. She claims this is under the medicare "kick-back" law. I have tried to research this also checking the CFR. This law is mainly for "referrals" with doctors working with each other's practices. There seems to be a law that exempts certain things from this "Medicare Law". Also, it seems like every week a Rep from a pharma company is bringing elaborate lunches for the whole office. I guess that's ok because she says its "under $20.00 per person!
