Overview:

In this session Mr. Wolfe will provide an overview of the Stark Law, including recent changes.

He will also discuss best practices for negotiating and drafting administrative arrangements 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.

Why you should Attend: As health care organizations and physicians develop administrative arrangements, they must manage their compliance and enterprise risk by ensuring any new arrangements are defensible under the Stark Law. Prior to moving forward with any arrangement, 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 arrangement is ever challenged.
