Waltz Quoted on Proposed Change To Stark Law

24 October 2019 Bloomberg Law News

Partner Judy Waltz was quoted in a Bloomberg Law article, “Hospitals’ Risk May Rise as Anti-Fraud Proposal Narrows Loophole,” about a CMS proposal to narrow an existing exception for isolated financial transactions under the physician self-referral law, otherwise known as the Stark Law.

Waltz, co-chair of the firm’s Health Care Industry Team, said she believes the exception has been used mostly to correct unintentional mistakes, not cover up corruption. “I don’t think these Stark cases necessarily reflect bad conduct. It’s usually just slip-ups,” she said. “Somebody just never connected what they were doing with a Stark issue.”
