Overview: In this session Mr. Wolfe will provide an overview of the Stark Law, including its 2016 changes. He will also discuss best practices for negotiating and drafting employment agreements on behalf of health systems, hospitals, medical groups and physician practices. The webinar will focus on regulatory requirements, key provisions, valuation considerations and potential pitfalls that should be avoided.
Why should you Attend: As health care organizations and physicians develop employment arrangements, they must manage their compliance and enterprise risk by ensuring the employment is defensible under the Stark Law. Prior to moving forward with any employment arrangement, 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. This webinar will focus on the Stark Law's underlying technical requirements and key tenets of defensibility as they apply to physician employment arrangements.
