Product Description

Say NO to Stark Violations and Penalties and Ensure Compliance

Stark, fraud, and abuse laws continue to confound providers and trip up the unwary, especially when it comes to paying for services, or acquiring or leasing assets.

The critical issue is establishing whether the payment or compensation constitutes fair market value. Recent law cases illustrate that well-meaning transactions can be attacked if payments include and overvalue goodwill or a person’s experience or knowledge. In the existing climate of consolidation, proper consideration and valuation of such intangibles becomes paramount.

Let this power packed session detail the standards of how intangibles can be included in pricing and compensation without violating Stark, fraud, and abuse law principles. It will also discuss the documentation needed to support the valuation of goodwill or know-how.

Plus, we will address when the fair market value opinions may be needed and issues that may arise in the preparation and review of such opinions. Lastly, lessons from recent enforcement actions and cases involving problematic valuations will be noted.

Here are some of the few vital questions answered in the session:

  • Can you legally include goodwill in selling a medical practice?
  • When are experience and know-how valid factors in compensation? 
  • What are the Stark and anti kickback law standards applicable to valuation of intangibles? 
  • What are the benchmarks that assist in establishing fair market value? 
  • When is an FMV opinion necessary and when it isn’t? 
  • How to address opposing valuation analyses? 
  • Lessons from OIG opinions and cases
