This program is valid for 1 PDCs for the SHRM-CPSM or SHRM-SCPSM.

Overview

In recent years, the health care industry has seen unprecedented levels of physician employment.  Structuring employment arrangements appropriately and periodically auditing implementation are critical in today’s challenging enforcement climate.

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 Stark Law webinar will focus on underlying technical requirements and key tenets of defensibility as they apply to physician employment arrangements.

  • Examine critical components of Stark compliant employment arrangements
