Health Care Contracting Toolkit: Best Practices & Three Key Tenets of Defensibility

Event Description

Deadline to Register: Wednesday, February 15, 2017 

Please note the LOCATION CHANGE for the February Health Law CLE at Winthrop & Weinstine, P.A. (Downtown Minneapolis). 

Lunch and registration will start at 11:30 a.m.  The CLE program will start at 12 noon. 

Any time a health care organization structures a contract involving physicians, it must be aware of the federal laws that are unique to the healthcare industry (e.g., the Stark Law, Anti-Kickback Statute, Civil Monetary Penalties Law, False Claims Act, etc.).  These laws affect any contract with physicians who are in a position to refer, including employment or service contracts, group compensation structures, joint ventures, leases for space or equipment, free or discounted items or services and virtually any other exchange of remuneration.

This session will include a “Contracting Toolkit” of best practices that health care organizations can follow to avoid compliance traps related to the technical requirements for payments to physicians and the Three Key Tenets of Defensibility: fair market value, commercial reasonableness, and not taking into account volume or value of referrals.  The session will also recap trends in government and whistleblower enforcement.

Areas Covered in the Session:
•    Summarize the enforcement trends and the “Three Key Tenets of Defensibility.”
•    Provide a focused review of the technical requirements of the health care laws.
•    Describe emerging physician contracting compliance traps.
•    Discuss the “Provider Contracting Toolkit” and best practices for enhancing defensibility.
