Overview: In this session Mr. Wolfe will provide an overview of the Stark Law and its 2017 changes. He will also discuss best practices for implementing and auditing physician compensation arrangements to minimize liability exposure and penalties, including conducting compliance audits, instituting policies, and establishing ongoing monitoring and review processes.
