CMS and OIG will discuss proposals for both the Stark exceptions and the Anti-Kickback safe harbors.

Recorded on 11/12/2019 Purchase On-Demand Recording 
On October 9, CMS issued a highly anticipated proposed rule aimed at modernizing and streamlining the Federal Stark Regulations.  The proposed rule contains extensive guidance on three critical regulatory requirements, fair market value, commercial reasonableness and the prohibition on “taking into account” the volume or value of a physician’s referrals.  Notably, CMS proposed modifications to the FMV definition, a new definition for commercial reasonableness and a bright-line standard for circumstances where compensation will be considered to “take into account” the volume or value of referrals.  Join leading industry experts, including the Chief Legal Officer for CMS, for an AHLA webinar that will focus on the proposed rule and this important Stark guidance.  This webinar will be complimentary for all AHLA members.
