Course Materials

This CLE course will guide healthcare counsel through the Stark Law, the Anti-Kickback Statute (AKS), and the Civil Monetary Penalty (CMP) Law final rules. The panel will discuss how these changes will impact healthcare providers and others in the healthcare industry.

Description

In November 2020, the Department of Health and Human Services published the long-awaited and highly anticipated final rules revising the regulations related to the Stark, AKS, and CMP Laws. The final rules provide a much-needed framework for protecting certain value-based arrangements that incentivize care coordination, quality of care, and cost containment. They also propose helpful new exceptions and safe harbors and clarify interpretations of current existing regulations and key definitions, including the "Big 3" fair market value (FMV), commercial reasonableness, and volume or value standards.

While many of the changes took effect in January 2021, other changes will take effect on Jan. 1, 2022, to allow for providers to adjust their practices in order to comply. Healthcare organizations will need to react and adapt quickly to the interpretations and positions taken by CMS and OIG.

Listen as our authoritative panel of healthcare attorneys examines the new Stark, AKS, and CMP Laws. The panel will discuss what these changes mean for healthcare providers and others in the healthcare industry.
