This CLE webinar will provide guidance to counsel for healthcare facilities and physicians on the legal implications of co-management arrangements. The panel will review applicable laws, regulations, and fair market value considerations to structure the arrangements to meet compliance requirements.


Healthcare providers are facing pressure to improve the quality of patient care while managing costs in a competitive marketplace. Co-management arrangements offer an opportunity to enhance the quality and efficiency of medical care by providers.

In co-management arrangements, physicians work collaboratively with hospitals to assist in managing a hospital department or service line. Under these arrangements, the healthcare system and the physicians have vested interests, responsibilities, and accountability. When entering into such arrangements, counsel to healthcare systems and physicians must take care to avoid violating various federal and state statutes, including anti-kickback laws, the Stark Law and state self-referral statutes, and the federal civil monetary penalty statute.

Listen as our authoritative panel examines co-management arrangements and the critical legal and regulatory concerns, fair market value considerations, and structural guidance. The panel will also offer insight into these arrangements from the hospitals' and physicians' perspectives.
