The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) released the long-awaited Stark Phase III final regulations governing physician self-referrals on August 27th. The new rules are expected to significantly impact referral activity and physician financial relationships.

Listen as our authoritative panel explains key issues addressed in the Stark Phase III regulations and best practices for transitioning to the final rules.



The panel will review these and other key questions:

  • What is the practical impact of the "stand in the shoes" deeming rules?
  • How do the new Stark III rules affect physician recruitment and indirect compensation arrangements?
  • What do health care providers need to do now to ensure compliance with the new rules?
