Services

As part of its efforts under the Regulatory Sprint, CMS and the OIG issued new exceptions and safe harbors through the Stark Law Final Rule and the AKS Final Rule, respectively (the “Final Rules”). The Final Rules generally become effective January 19, 2021; however, changes under the Stark Law Final Rule to the group practice rules relating to profit shares and productivity bonuses will become effective on January 1, 2022. 

We have authored a White Paper and two supplemental client resources (all linked below) to provide a thorough overview of the upcoming changes under the Final Rules.
