This CLE webinar will analyze vexing issues in valuation of professional service arrangements/employment deals, emergency department call coverage, and service line co-management arrangements. The panel will address valuation and regulatory concerns that result and offer best practices for overcoming valuation challenges.

Description

Compliance in drafting and implementing physician compensation arrangements is challenging in a changing healthcare landscape. Many aspects of effective compliance begin with an understanding of the regulatory issues involved and the ever-changing valuation dynamics.

Current valuation and regulatory challenges exist in physician compensation arrangements, such as: (1) employment/professional services arrangements; (2) emergency department call coverage; (3) service line co-management arrangements; and (4) shared savings arrangements.  Each of these compensation areas are becoming increasingly complex and nuanced, further complicating the resulting valuation and regulatory concerns facing healthcare attorneys and compliance professionals today.

As use of these arrangements grows, these types of arrangements continue to increase in complexity. As a result, new issues that require attention in the valuation process arise. Healthcare counsel and advisors must take into consideration a variety of healthcare regulatory requirements, including AKS, Stark, tax and state laws.

Listen as our authoritative panel of healthcare advisors addresses critical issues involved in valuation in PSA/employment deals, ED call coverage, and service line co-management arrangements. The panel will address valuation and regulatory concerns that result and offer best practices for overcoming valuation challenges.
