Several of the recent Stark Law cases and settlements have highlighted the risks of entering into flawed leasing arrangements.
In this webinar, Mr. Wolfe will discuss why these leases must satisfy a Stark Law exception, and why the rental rate paid must be at fair market value and on terms that are commercial reasonable.
He will also discuss key features of effective and defensible physician leases. The webinar will include practical strategies that health care executives can use to enhance the defensibility of these arrangements, including potential features of an organizational policy
Why should you Attend: Many health care organizations lease space to physicians and physician groups and this trend is expected to continue.
Unfortunately, these leases carry substantial compliance risk if they are not structured and implemented correctly.The regulatory requirements leases under the health care fraud and abuse laws (Stark Law, Anti-Kickback Statute) are very complex. In recent years, several health care organizations have made compliance missteps which subjected them to substantial penalties and settlements with the government.
It’s critical for health care leaders to understand the rules surrounding leases with physicians and groups so they can spot and address issues to help mitigate risk. Many health care organizations have developed policies and processes that outline the structures, rental rates and documentation that are required when entering into lease arrangements.
