Physician practice deal activity continues at a torrid pace. In the vast majority of physician practice deals, the question of whether the practice is structured as a “group practice” within the meaning of the federal physician self-referral law, commonly known as the Stark Law, is the subject of tremendous attention. Qualifying as a group practice is a prerequisite to satisfy the in-office ancillary services exception, which is, in many cases, the only means through which a physician practice’s members can profit from their referrals for ancillary services.
The in-office ancillary services exception is among the most complex exceptions in the statute, and the group practice definition drives much of that complexity. Recent rule changes add to the analytical framework and demand reconsideration of group practice compensation mechanics.
Drawing from their extensive experience grappling with these issues, Travis Lloyd, Cindy Reisz and Danielle Sloane will discuss a variety of group practice and in-office ancillary services exception compliance challenges, including new rules regarding profit shares and productivity bonuses, issues associated with “roll-up” transactions, and other regulatory intricacies that can derail a deal or threaten day-to-day operations.
