Care Coordination, Clinical Integration, Group Practices and Research, Oh, My: Designing Healthcare Provider Incentives After COVID and New Stark Law and AKS Final Rules
Care Coordination, Clinical Integration, and Research
Recording of a 90-minute CLE video webinar with Q&A
This CLE course will guide healthcare counsel and advisers on the emerging trends in financial incentives for physicians and other providers and the pitfalls in properly documenting, structuring, and implementing them. The panel will review the relevant changes to the Stark and Anti-Kickback Statute regulations, the implications for physician incentives, and the different regulatory structures under which healthcare organizations must operate.
- Emerging trends and focus areas for healthcare provider financial incentives, including new "care team" bonuses allowed for group practices and rules about group practice protection for value based enterprise profits
- Old and new pitfalls in documentation, structure, and implementation, as evidenced through case law and regulatory guidance
- Commercial reasonableness and FMV after new Stark Law and AKS Final Rules, including how these concepts and their importance have changed (and also how they haven't changed)
- Best practices for avoiding pitfalls in the design and structuring of incentive compensation arrangements in 2021 and forward
The panel will review these and other key issues:
- What are the recent trends in physician incentives?
- What steps can healthcare advisers take to ensure regulatory compliance when structuring physician incentives?
- What are the implications for compliance with the Stark Law, the AKS, and other laws and regulations?
