Why should you Attend: Many health care organizations lease space to physicians and physician
groups and this trend is expected to continue.

Unfortunately, these leases carry substantial compliance risk if they are not structured and
implemented correctly.The regulatory requirements leases under the health care fraud and abuse
laws (Stark Law, Anti-Kickback Statute) are very complex. In recent years, several health care
organizations have made compliance missteps which subjected them to substantial penalties and
settlements with the government.

It’s critical for health care leaders to understand the rules surrounding leases with
physicians and groups so they can spot and address issues to help mitigate risk. Many health
care organizations have developed policies and processes that outline the structures, rental
rates and documentation that are required when entering into lease arrangements.
