Value-Based Purchasing and the Stark Law and Anti-Kickback Statute: What You Need to Know to About Recent Regulatory Changes
Created on June 03, 2021
In November 2020, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), and the HHS Office of the Inspector General (OIG) issued final rules implementing significant regulatory changes to the Stark Law and Anti-Kickback Statute. Many of the changes were aimed at giving providers flexibility when entering into value-based arrangements by creating new Stark Law exceptions and Anti-Kickback Statute safe harbors to protect certain value-based arrangements. While the regulatory changes are significant, the exceptions and safe harbors have numerous specific requirements that must be met for providers to avail themselves of the protections.
This program will provide an in-depth discussion of the new Stark Law and Anti-Kickback Statute value-based purchasing exceptions and safe harbors, including the qualifying requirements for being considered a valid value-based arrangement under each law. The course will discuss examples of innovative arrangements that could be protected under the new exceptions and safe harbors. This program will benefit health care lawyers who are familiar with the Stark Law and Anti-Kickback Statute, as well as transactional lawyers who routinely represent clients in the healthcare industry.
