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.
