Learn how January’s changes to US regulations will impact your private practice

Join AGA on March 11, at 8 p.m. EST, for a free webinar making sense of the new regulations updating the Stark Law and anti-kickback statute.

On Jan. 19, 2021, the nearly 30-year-old U.S. regulations implementing the federal physician self-referral law (or Stark Law) and anti-kickback statute (AKS) underwent a monumental update as part of the federal effort to move more physicians into value-based payment arrangements and alternative payment models (APMs).

Changes include:

  • New exceptions and safe harbors for value-based arrangements.
  • Clarifications to fundamental terminology and requirements.
  • Guidance on technical compliance requirements intended to reduce administrative burden that drives up costs.

Join AGA for the free webinar, Modernizing the Stark & Anti-Kickback Statute Regs: How It Could Impact Your Practice on March 11, at 8 p.m. EST, to help you make sense of the changes.

Lawrence R. Kosinski, MD, MBA, AGAF, founder and chief medical officer at SonarMD, and former managing partner of Illinois Gastroenterology Group, will moderate the webinar with experts Robert S. Jasak, Esq., vice president of coverage and payment policy at Hart Health Strategies, Inc. and Cindy H. Moon, MPP, MPH, vice president of health care payment and delivery reform at Hart Health Strategies.

Learn how these changes could impact your practice and key concepts to begin thinking about compliance with the new flexibilities, as well as provide the opportunity to share feedback on your experiences.

Upon completion, you will be able to identify changes you can make in your practice as a result of the new Stark law rules and AKS updates that will reduce administrative burden to lower costs, identify new exceptions and safe harbors that allow practices to stay compliant, and assess whether your practice can participate in value-based payment arrangements and alternative payment model opportunities.
