Many healthcare professionals involved in physician contracting get caught up in the contracting process itself and forget that successfully carrying out the terms of the contract is, and will likely always be, the most important aspect of staying compliant with the Stark Law. Executing a bona fide physician contract does not guarantee protection from a Stark violation. However, developing and implementing a comprehensive physician payment monitoring program will likely provide the fail safe program you have always wanted and help your organization be successful in avoiding any payment made outside the terms of the contract.
Having a solid physician contracting process does not always prevent Stark violations. In this session, expert speaker Marcie R. Swenson, RN, JD, LLM, CHC, will discuss why a physician payment monitoring program is the only way to guarantee that payments are being made strictly according to contract terms, and how it helps in avoiding Stark violations. Marcie will also elaborate on a dynamic step-by-step approach that must be completed each time a payment is requested for a physician, physician group, or entity providing physician services.
