A routine internal review confirms it: your practice or facility faces a potential Stark law violation. You may already be violating the law without realizing it – such as through an expired written contract, a non-allowed ownership interest, an improper ancillary referral, lack of documentation to support fair market value, and so on. Ignoring the problem is not an option. Because if you violate the Stark law, you must repay all the billed charges – and possibly face False Claims Act liability and Medical exclusion as well.
Although recent Stark law amendments and case law provide some breathing room for inadvertent errors like a contract renewal that falls through the cracks, other types of errors can may call for quick action to stop potential losses, and a reckoning with the Medicare contractor, CMS or the OIG may be necessary before it’s too late.
In this audio conference, expert speaker Wayne Miller will walk you through some of the major and minor Stark law violations that may be lurking undetected. Miller will show you how to quickly fix simple problems – such as expired agreement and therapy supervision mistakes. You will learn how to handle the damage if the issue is potentially large, based on the lessons learned from recent rules and cases. You will know when Stark law doesn’t apply, learn about the top five hidden Stark law violations, and find out how to avoid or limit liability risk. Miller will also show you how to calculate what’s owed to Medicare, as well as when to pay and when to consider extended repayment or self-disclosure.
After attending this session, you’ll be confident in your ability to avoid Stark law violations, limit your risk liability, and act swiftly to prevent losses.
The presentation will cover the following topics:
