Rachel V. Rose, JD, MBA, principal with Rachel V. Rose – Attorney at Law, P.L.L.C., Houston, TX and Don Barbo, Managing Director with VMG Health are presenting this timely webinar. On January 19, 2021, a new era was ushered in as the CMS Stark Law Final Rule and the HHS-OIG Anti-Kickback Statute Final Rule became effective. The impetus behind the new Final Rules is value-based care and care coordination. In light of the advent of Value-Based Arrangements, which include Value-Based Enterprises, as well as the continuing importance of fair-market value and commercial reasonableness, this presentation focuses on these aspects of the respective Final Rules, which must be read in conjunction with each other. Additionally, a portion of the presentation will be dedicated to the nuances of balance sheets, income statements, and valuations in relation to both the healthcare industry and the aforementioned laws.
On December 2, 2020, CMS and OIG issued their Final Rules relating to the modifications to the Stark Regulations and the Anti-Kickback Statute Safe Harbors proposed in their October 17, 2019 Notices of Proposed Rulemaking. If you would like to gain more awareness of these important updates, please register for our complimentary webinar and earn CEU.

Waivers and discounts are normal business activities that occur throughout the US daily as a way to reward customers or to assist when an invoice or bill may too expensive. However, in a healthcare context, the normal rules for waivers and discounts don’t apply. This presentation will highlight what waivers and discounts are, how they work, and when they are problematic/illegal.
Catherine Short converses with Rachel V. Rose, JD, MBA, principal with Rachel V. Rose – Attorney at Law, P.L.L.C., Houston, TX, on the topic of “The New AKS and Stark Laws Final Rules – Key Take-Aways.” On November 20, 2020, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) issued a Final Rule related to the Medicare Physician Self-Referral Law (Stark Law). Nearly simultaneously, the Office of the Inspector General, Department of Health and Human Services (HHS-OIG), released a Final Rule, which amends various safe harbors to the Federal Anti-Kickback Statute (AKS). The changes appear to be based, in large part, on value-based healthcare delivery and payment systems. On this episode, we will highlight the key changes, along with the similarities and differences in the language between the two Final Rules, examine the new AKS safe harbors and Stark Law exceptions, compare and contrast critical items found in both Final Rules, and appreciate the risks of non-compliance.
