Description:

In this session, Mr. Wolfe will provide an overview of the Stark Law, including its 2016 changes.He will also discuss best practices for auditing physician compensation arrangements on behalf of health systems, hospitals, medical groups and physician practices.The webinar will focus on regulatory requirements, key provisions, valuation considerations and potential pitfalls that should be avoided.

Background of the topic:

Last year, CMS finalized a number of significant changes to the Stark Law. Now that these changes have gone into effect, health care organizations should be monitoring and auditing their existing arrangements to ensure they are compliant with Stark’s technical requirements and key tenets of defensibility (e.g., fair market value, commercial reasonableness, and not taking into account designated health service referrals) in case their physician arrangements are ever challenged.

Why should you attend?

  • Healthcare reform has invigorated the government's focus on health care fraud, including enforcement of the Stark Law. Improper design and implementation of physician arrangements can result in penalties, denial of payments, and exclusion from federal health care programs. Thus, ensuring Stark Law compliance will be critical for medical groups, hospitals and health systems looking to manage areas of enterprise risk.
  • Health care organizations should periodically audit their existing arrangements to ensure they are compliant with Stark’s technical requirements and key tenets of defensibility (e.g., fair market value, commercial reasonableness, and not taking into an account designated health service referrals, etc.) in case their physician compensation arrangements are ever challenged.
  • This webinar will offer best practices for implementing and auditing physician compensation arrangements to minimize liability exposure and penalties, including conducting compliance audits, instituting policies, and establishing ongoing monitoring and reviews.
