“Physician Compensation Arrangements After Stark Law Changes”

Bloomberg Law recently published an article co-authored by PYA Principal Angie Caldwell and Jana Kolarik, a partner at Foley & Lardner, in its August edition. The article, “Physician Compensation Arrangements After Stark Law Changes,” is the second part of an article published by Bloomberg in June 2022. The latest article analyzes the previous compliance takeaways, including fair market value (FMV) and commercial reasonableness (CR) considerations. Using the same example from the first article, the authors focus on the related FMV and CR analyses. The article also recommends that providers continually review physician arrangements in order to maintain compliance.

Article Excerpt

Such revisions may impact current financial arrangements with physicians, and especially the FMV and CR analyses supporting them. A thorough Stark Law exception analysis of physician arrangements, including FMV and CR determinations, is not evergreen and requires continued focus and comprehensive review.
