In-Person / Webinar

Details

Overview:

Several of the recent Stark Law cases and settlements have highlighted the risks of entering
into contracts for physician leadership.

In this webinar, Mr. Wolfe will discuss why these contracts must satisfy a Stark Law
exception, and why compensation paid to physician leaders must be at fair market value and on
terms that are commercial reasonable. He will also discuss key features of effective and
defensible contracts.

The webinar will include practical strategies that health care executives can use to enhance
the defensibility of these arrangements, including potential features of an organizational
policy.

Why should you Attend: In recent years, the health care industry has seen unprecedented
engagement of physicians leaders to serve as medical directors and in other administrative
roles. With increasing emphasis on clinical quality and value this trend is only expected to
accelerate.

It's critical for health care leaders to understand the rules surrounding these agreements so
they can spot and address issues to help mitigate risk. Many health care organizations are
developing policies that outline the structures, rates of compensation and documentation that
are required when entering into administrative contracts.
