Live Webinar Description:

The presentation will cover a recent Stark Final Rule protecting arrangements between parties in a referral relationship who are engaged in activities intended to promote care coordination or deliver increased value to patients and payers. The CMS Final Rule protects arrangements between hospitals, other health care providers or practitioners, and/or payors that qualify as Value-Based Enterprise (VBE) Participants. The presenters will analyze the VBE model, which is a critical component of these new Stark Law exceptions.
