Why should you Attend: As health care organizations and physicians develop recruitment arrangements, they must manage their compliance and enterprise risk by ensuring the arrangements are defensible under the Stark Law. Prior to moving forward with any recruitment arrangements, the parties should carefully evaluate whether the proposed structure and financial terms support compliance with Stark's technical requirements and key tenets of defensibility so they will be prepared to mount a defense in the event the arrangement is ever challenged.
