In this session Mr. Wolfe will provide an overview of the Stark Law and its 2016 changes. He will also discuss 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 review processes.
On October 30th CMS finalized a number of significant changes to the Stark Law that will be effective for the 2016 calendar year. With changes on the horizon, 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, etc.) in case their physician contracts are ever challenged.
