CMS has finalized a number of significant changes to the Stark Law, including a new Stark exception that allows hospitals to provide financial support to physician practices that employ or contract with non-physician practitioners ("NPPs").
As health care organizations and physicians develop NPP arrangements, they must manage their compliance and enterprise risk by ensuring their arrangements are defensible under the Stark Law. Prior to moving forward with any NPP arrangements, the parties should carefully evaluate whether the proposed structure and financial terms support compliance with Stark’s technical requirements and key tenets of defensibility so they will be prepared to mount a defense in the event the lease is ever challenged.
Join this session by expert speaker Joseph Wolfe as he provides an overview of the Stark Law, including its most recent changes. He will also discuss best practices for negotiating and drafting NPP arrangements on behalf of health systems, hospitals, medical groups and physician practices. The webinar will focus on the regulatory requirements, key provisions, valuation considerations and potential pitfalls that should be avoided.
