Overview:

In this session Mr. Wolfe will provide an overview of the Anti-Kickback and Stark Law, including its 2016 changes. He will also discuss best practices for negotiating and drafting medical director arrangements on behalf of health systems, hospitals and medical groups. The webinar will focus on key provisions that should be included and potential pitfalls that should be avoided.

Why should you Attend: Given the substantial awards and settlements in recent enforcement actions, Stark Law compliance has become more than just a compliance issue: it is an enterprise risk management issue. As medical groups, hospitals, and health systems transition to more innovative compensation structures, they must manage their compliance and enterprise risk by ensuring their medical director and administrative arrangements are defensible under the Stark Law.

Areas Covered in the Session:

  • Provide a general Stark Law and Anti-Kickback Statute overview.
  • Examine critical components of Stark and Anti-Kickback compliant medical director arrangements
  • Discuss best practices for drafting medical director agreements and the related compensation plans
  • Review processes for documenting medical director duties and service hours
  • Review processes for documenting fair market value and commercial reasonableness
  • Discuss best practices for auditing existing medical director arrangements and potential pitfalls

Who Will Benefit:
  • In-House Counsel
  • Health Care Compliance Officers
  • Health Care Human Resources
  • Health Care CFOs
  • Health Care executives
