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.
In this session Mr. Wolfe will provide an overview of the Stark Law, including its 2016 changes. He will also discuss best practices for negotiating and drafting leases 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.
