Overview of Stark Law's Underlying Technical Requirements and Key Tenets of Defensibility

Last year, CMS finalized several significant changes to the Stark Law. Since these changes have now gone into effect, healthcare organizations must monitor and audit their existing arrangements to ensure that they are in compliance with Stark’s technical requirements and key tenets of defensibility, such as fair market value, commercial reasonableness, as well as not taking into account assigned health service referrals, in case their physician setups are ever challenged.

Recently, Stark Law enforcement actions have led to substantial awards and settlements. Therefore, it has moved from being just a compliance issue to an enterprise risk management issue. As healthcare organizations and physicians continue to develop lease arrangements, they need to manage their compliance and enterprise risks by ensuring that their leases continue to stay defensible under the Stark Law.
