Structuring Physician Practice Acquisitions: Key Stark Law Considerations

Duration :

Course Description:

         In recent years, the health care industry has seen unprecedented consolidation. Many health care organizations are acquiring physician practices, and then employing or contracting for the professional physician services post-acquisition. Pursuing these transactions in a compliance-focused manner is critical in today's challenging enforcement climate.

Why should you Attend?

         As health care organizations and physician practices pursue acquisition strategies and transition to more innovative post-transaction models, 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, they 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.
