CMS Special Open Door Forum: Physician Self-Referral Law

2 December 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

December 2, 2020, 2-3PM EDT | Conference Call Only

Please join us on Wednesday, December 2, at 2:00pm ET for a Special Open Door Forum to discuss a final rule released on November 20, to modernize and clarify the regulations that interpret the federal physician self-referral law (often called the “Stark Law”). The final rule supports the CMS “Patients over Paperwork” initiative by reducing unnecessary regulatory burdens on physicians and other healthcare providers while reinforcing the Stark Law’s goal of protecting patients from unnecessary services and being steered to less convenient, lower quality, or more expensive services because of a physician’s financial self-interest.

 Topics will include:

  • Exceptions that Facilitate the Transition to Value-based Care Delivery and Payment Arrangements
  • New Guidance and Clarifications Related to Key Terminology of the Stark Law
  • Flexibilities to Enhance Compliance and Reduce Burden

We look forward to your participation.
