AHLA Annual Meeting: Deep Dive: Stark and Anti-Kickback Statute Compliance in Hospital and Physician Transactions, hosted by AHLA

3rd Party Hosted Event
Date: 29 June 2021
Time: 12:15 PM
Location: via Webinar

Two experienced counsel who have handled different sides of physician and hospital transactions, and subsequent defense of investigations concerning the same, will grapple with the nuances of how Stark and AKS are applied to a physician transaction. These issues will be brought to life by audience participation and hypothetical discussions based on fact patterns in reported cases/settlements, including discussion on the following topics:

Exceptions and Safe Harbors that may apply (or not). Implications of the new Stark and AKS rules that became effective January 2021: 

  • Conceptual framework to evaluate how Stark commercial reasonableness and the facts and circumstances analysis of AKS intent overlap
  • The difference between case law's concept of "hopes and expectations" of referrals and actions that actually cross the line
  • Other practical guard rails to consider in a transaction
