During a recent BVR webinar, Tim Smith (TS Healthcare Consulting LLC) told the audience that a new credential is in the works for valuing the compensation of healthcare providers (physicians, physician assistants, and nurse practitioners). The credential (including professional standards) will be offered by the American Association of Provider Compensation Professionals (AAPCP), a relatively new nonprofit group whose members advise and lead healthcare organizations on provider compensation, contracting, planning, recruitment, retention, strategy, and, yes, valuation. The fair market value of physician compensation and related arrangements is an area subject to increasing scrutiny and complex regulations. The determination of FMV is handled by staffers at healthcare systems as well as external valuation experts, and both these groups are among the ranks of AAPCP members.

Smith heads the credential committee at the AAPCP, and he is the author of the just-released Complete Guide to Fair Market Value Under the Stark Regulations.
