On July 2, 2007, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) released a proposed regulation that may significantly impact certain physician/hospital relationships under which the hospital furnishes services to its patients under arrangements with a physician group or joint venture partially owned by physicians.

Specifically, CMS proposes to revise the definition of entity in the Stark Law regulations to include both the entity that submits the claim to Medicare for the designated health services and the entity that performs the designated health services (i.e., the under arrangements services provider).

Neal A. Cooper, JD, Attorney at Law at Hall, Render, Killian, Heath & Lyman, P.C. led an informative Webinar, Proposed Changes to Stark Law, to discuss how the changes will have an impact on sleep medicine practices. The Webinar addresses issues relevant to sleep physicians, DME providers and IDTFs.
