In recent years, the healthcare industry has seen unprecedented levels of physician employment. Structuring employment arrangements appropriately and periodically auditing implementation are critical in today’s challenging enforcement climate. Healthcare organizations and physicians should ensure that their employment arrangements are defensible under the Stark law in order to manage compliance and enterprise risks.
In the event that an employment arrangement is ever challenged, defending it would require the proposed structure and financial terms to comply with Stark’s technical requirements and key tenets of defensibility.
This presentation with expert speaker Joseph Wolfe will focus on Stark's underlying technical requirements and key tenets of defensibility as they apply to physician employment arrangements. You will also get an overview of the Stark law and the changes that happened in 2016.
Additionally, Joseph will discuss best practices for negotiating and drafting employment agreements from the perspective of health systems, hospitals, medical groups and physician practices. The session will focus on regulatory requirements, key provisions, valuation considerations and potential pitfalls that should be avoided.
