This program will provide a basic understanding of the federal Stark Law for new healthcare lawyers and a refresher for experienced lawyers. The Stark Law applies very broadly to business transactions and other financial relationships between physicians and health care providers, and can create significant exposure. As a “strict liability” statute, even innocent failures to meet Stark Law requirements may subject health care providers to substantial financial penalties.
Through the use of practical examples, this program will help you identify Stark Law issues and develop effective solutions.
Our expert panelists will address the following questions:
- When is the Stark Law implicated?
- What are the key exceptions to the Law?
- How do you analyze a potential Stark Law issue?
Panelists will also discuss:
- stark Law issue spotting;
- what is a “designated health service” or DHS;
- the key to analysis: Stark Law definitions;
- Stark Law enforcement;
- practical guidance for dealing with Stark Law issues;
- the self-disclosure protocol; and
- cutting-edge Stark Law developments.
