Stark Law Changes 2021: Are They Here To Stay?
In a flurry of rule-making at the end of 2020, Medicare issued significant modifications to the “Stark law” rules which limit financial arrangements between physicians and healthcare facilities in which they have a financial relationship. The new rules make less stringent several exceptions to the law’s general prohibition. In light of these changes, there are a number of preliminary considerations as well as opportunities for the healthcare industry.
First, the incoming Administration may delay, amend, freeze or outright reject the new rules. By the time of this seminar, we expect to have a clearer picture of enforceability. Assuming that they are implemented, the modified rules will have a significant impact on many types of transactions.
Providers must assess the impact of the new rules with respect to several types of transactions. This conference will provide up-to-date information about the modified rules’ enforceability. We will also discuss specific examples of physician contracting, management company or healthcare practice acquisition and medical multi-specialty group contracting, demonstrating how Stark law compliance is made easier.
