Physician Employment Arrangements & Stark Law SettlementsTwo recent and large Stark Law-based settlements have caused concern in the healthcare industry regarding physician employment arrangements.  A team of attorneys from Reinhart Boerner Van Deuren have written a very helpful white paper that can offer guidance on how to move forward with your physician compensation agreements considering the outcome of those two settlements.

The easy to read white paper is packed with good advice.

For example:

 “It is essential that each physician compensation arrangement (1) be supported by evidence of an actual need for the physician’s services, (2) accurately reflects the services actually provided, and (3) be commercially reasonable”.
