Webinar Focuses on Compensation Rules Under the New Stark Laws

The webinar Compensation Rules Under the New Stark Laws will be offered from 11 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. EST May 26 to outline new rules under the Physician Self-Referral Law, commonly known as the Stark Law, surrounding value-based payment arrangements. The new rules apply to the requirements of fair market value, commercial reasonableness and the “volume or value” standard.

The details of the game-changing modernization will be explained, including:

  • Existing relationships with physicians that may not fit squarely within the framework, or circumstances that may dictate veering from values identified in healthcare salary surveys.
  • The revised definition of commercially reasonable and what is allowed, like arrangements not all based on profit.
  • When compensation accounts for the volume or value of a physician’s designated health services referrals or other business generated.

Arthur deVaux, JD, an attorney in the healthcare practice group at Hall Render Killian Heath & Lyman; Alessa Quiñones-Ortiz, JD, MHA, Spectrum Health legal counsel; and Ted Tackett, MBA, a principal in the Physician Workforce Practice at SullivanCotter, will share their expertise and experience.

The webinar is free to MHA members, but registration is required. Members with questions should contact Erin Steward at the MHA.
