Easing Frustrations with the Stark Law: CMS' Proposed Regulations
Led by the VIrginia MGMA in collaboration with the NY MGMA, PA MGMA, CT MGMA, and WV MGMA.
CMS proposed various changes to the Stark Law regulations last Fall to help ease some of the requirements for healthcare providers. Many of the proposed changes address value-based care models, but others address more practical concerns for today’s group practice provider. Attendees will learn about proposed changes to key terms and concepts—including commercial reasonableness, special rules on compensation, compensation that “takes into account” the volume or value of referrals, fair market value, the new limited remuneration exception and the special rule for productivity bonuses and profit shares. Each of these could help provide groups with additional flexibility in structuring financial relationships with their physicians.
