Value-based Arrangements: A Practical Approach to Applying the New Anti-Kickback Safe Harbors and Physician Self-Referral Exceptions for Hospitals and Health Systems

October 6, 2021
Bass, Berry & Sims
Webinar

Are you struggling to identify opportunities to apply the new rules and regulations promulgated by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) and the Office of Inspector General (OIG) regarding value-based arrangements? If so, join us as we talk through some real-world scenarios and best practices.

Hospitals and health systems are particularly well-suited to take advantage of the new flexibilities provided by CMS’s final rule promulgating new exceptions to the federal Physician Self-Referral Law, and the OIG’s final rule promulgating new safe harbors to the federal Anti-Kickback Statute (AKS). These rules create a framework for innovation by protecting value-based arrangements that improve quality, outcomes, and efficiency; however, the rules can be challenging to decipher in the abstract.

Join Bass, Berry & Sims as our healthcare attorneys, including two former HHS-OIG officials who contributed to OIG’s final rule, host a complimentary webinar designed specifically for hospitals and health systems. Rather than simply reviewing the final rules and relevant agency commentary, this webinar will help attendees identify opportunities to implement value-based arrangements within their own organizations by applying the rules to value-based scenarios specific to hospitals and health systems. Our attorneys will also provide practical tips and discuss best practices for structuring a value-based enterprise.

Please note that this webinar will assume general familiarity with the value-based final rules. For that, we recommend reviewing our overview of the final value-based safe harbors and exceptions, which is available here.

This webinar will take place from 11:00 – 12:00 PM CT on Wednesday, October 6, 2021.
