Health Care Conference – September 27, 2017

Location:

FAE Learning Center

14 Wall Street, 19th Floor

New York NY, 10005

September 27, 2017 9 a.m.- 5 p.m.

Presenting: David Zarett

Legal Updates: Management Service Agreements—Recent Updates in Enforcement; Payer Audits

The prevailing trend throughout the United States involves extensive consolidation in the health care industry and, in particular, the acquisition of medical practices by large hospitals or health care systems. The primary thrust of this presentation will involve an overview of the important legal and business considerations that physicians should take into account when considering the advantages and disadvantages of a hospital/health system acquisition offer, and the negotiation process, if the physician decides to go forward with the transaction. Examples of the issues addressed at the presentation include structuring compensation formulas, the acquisition of hard assets, restrictive covenant and nonsolicitation provisions, term and termination provisions, linking privileges to continued employment, administrative versus clinical duties, malpractice insurance, and malpractice tail concerns. Consolidation has also lead to the establishment of larger practice groups, which, in turn, consider contracting with management companies to facilitate administrative operations. Today’s presentation will also involve new and significant developments in the law regarding the permissible parameters of practice management arrangements.

I am an anesthesiologist and I currently render services on behalf of an ASC. Can the non-anesthesiologist owners of the ASC where I render services share in the revenue generated by me?


Maybe. In light of the OIG opinion rendered 5/25/12 (OIG Advisory Opinion 12-06), any arrangement between an anesthesiologist and an ambulatory surgery center (ASC) (or any other provider) must be analyzed in the context of the general prohibitions under New York and Federal law against kickbacks to ensure that such arrangements are compliant and minimize risk. For additional information please click here to read the article entitled “Understanding Financial Arrangements Between Anesthesiologists and Ambulatory Surgical Centers as Per the Recent OIG Opinion.
