As previously reported, the Department of Health and Human Services has published highly anticipated proposed changes to align the regulations under the Physician Self-Referral Law, the federal Anti-Kickback Statute, and the Civil Monetary Penalties Law with value-based health care arrangements. Reed Smith is providing a series of client alerts and teleseminars that analyze key aspects of the proposals and significant areas for comment (the comment period runs through December 31, 2019).

  • Part One, presented here, focuses on the new value-based arrangement framework proposed by the Office of Inspector General and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) and the new safe harbors and exceptions that would be available to persons and entities participating in those arrangements. Reed Smith will discuss these proposed changes in a teleseminar scheduled for October 31, 2019.
  • Part Two will address additional CMS proposed changes to the Stark Law regulations, with a teleseminar following on November 12, 2019.
  • Part Three will focus on what these proposals mean for digital health arrangements and companies, with a teleseminar following on November 21, 2019.

Additional analysis and details on the teleseminars will be available in the near future.
