Questions and concerns have abounded for years on Stark Law… did CMS finally deliver some answers? Find out on our show!

In another Final Rule posted by CMS during November, CMS finally made some long-awaited updates and clarifications to some major provisions of the Stark regulation, which is of course part of the Social Security Act and also mentioned in the Affordable Care Act.

The good news is that at least we have some clarification of certain things, and we also have some additional and/or extended exceptions to the regulation, which make it better for keeping physicians from being given a new wardrobe, all in orange, with white canvas slippers. And after all, no one looks good in orange, right?

Clinton Mikel, a Partner at HLP, has practiced in almost all areas of healthcare law, but have focused on compliance with federal and state health care regulations and on transactional matters, including self-referral laws.

We’ve invited two veteran attorneys from The Health Law Partners to give us a review of the major changes, and we’ve also included a brief history of why this matters and how we got to this point, with three – count ’em – three laws covering fraud and abuse (the False Claims Act, the Anti-Kickback Statute, and the Stark Law). Joining us will be Adrienne Dresevic and Clinton Mikel, both very experienced healthcare regulatory attorneys at The Health Law Partners.

So, today, we review these topics:

  1. How did we get these three laws and why?
  2. Do you have to have intent to file false claims to be convicted of such?
  3. What kind of exceptions have been added now?
  4. What kind of effect might all this have on an ACO?

So listen in, share your own insights and bring your questions for us!

Tune in on Friday, same Bat Time, same Bat Channel…
