Foley Partner Michael Blau and Of Counsel Donald Romano will be speaking at the Stafford Publications Inc. Co-Management Arrangements in Healthcare: Latest Developments Live Webinar on March 5, 2014.

Healthcare providers are facing increased pressure to improve patient care and marketplace competition in the wake of healthcare reform. Co-management arrangements offer an opportunity to improve the quality and efficiency of medical care by providers.

In co-management arrangements, an incentive-based compensation model, physicians manage a hospital department or service line. Under these arrangements, the healthcare system and the physicians have vested interests, responsibilities and accountability.

When entering into such arrangements, counsel to healthcare systems and physicians must take care to avoid violating anti-kickback rules, Stark law, and Civil Monetary Penalty law.

Our panel will provide guidance for counsel to healthcare facilities and physicians on the legal implications of co-management arrangements. The panel will review applicable laws, regulations and fair market value considerations to structure the arrangements to meet compliance requirements.

We will offer our perspectives and guidance on these and other critical questions:

  • What are the key regulatory concerns for healthcare providers considering co-management arrangements?
  • How do co-management arrangements and gain-sharing arrangements differ?
  • What steps can hospitals, physicians and their counsel take to ensure compliance with Stark and anti-kickback laws?

After our presentations, we will engage in a live question and answer session with participants so we can answer your questions about these important issues directly.
