Regulation of physician and dental practices is undergoing a sea change as the health care industry adapts to the new health care reform law. These practices are being buffeted by developments related to payments, electronic records requirements, and anti-kickback and Stark regulations, and continuing challenges by the IRS to compensation practices. Industry trends are also challenging physicians and dentists with the rise of ACOs and general consolidation, including sales of practices to hospitals. This program will provide you with a practical guide to legal developments impacting physician and dental practices, including health care reform, electronic records, compensation practices, sales of practices, anti-kickback and Stark rules, and much more. Part 2 of 2.

  • Trends in organizing professional practices – regulatory and financial considerations
  • Physician and dentist compensation issues, including “unreasonable compensation” developments and the impact of Section 409A
