As evidenced by a wave of recent cases and settlements, the federal government continues to focus on the federal physician self-referral law (Stark Law) and its implementing regulations. Despite recent enforcement actions, the prohibition on the "taking into account" of designated health services referrals continues to receive far less industry attention than the fair market value or commercial reasonableness standards. Experts Joe Wolfe and Alyssa James will focus on the Stark Law’s volume or value standard, including the underlying regulatory framework, relevant guidance from CMS, and the inherent tensions in the standard as illustrated in recent enforcement actions. Learn the context and direction healthcare organizations, appraisers, and legal counsel need to know as they navigate this confounding area of healthcare arrangements.
