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:
