A Primer on Physician Alignment Models

Date:Tuesday, November 12, 2013
Time:1:00 p.m. - 2:00 p.m. EST

Katz, Sapper & Miller's Healthcare Resources Group (KSM) and The Law Office of Catherine G. Patsos, LLC will host a presentation on the topic of physician alignment models. Mike Gizzi of KSM and Catherine Patsos will present.

In an era of increasing expenses, declining reimbursements and intensifying regulatory pressure, physicians are constantly looking for new ways to increase revenue for their practices. Physician/hospital alignment and physician/physician alignment are dominant strategies in today's healthcare market and many of these alternative models involve aligning themselves with hospitals and other physician practices.

Healthcare lawyers, therefore, must understand the various alignments to properly counsel physicians on the regulatory landscape associated with such arrangements. In addition, accountants have to work side by side with healthcare attorneys to ensure the positive impact and sustainability of the selected alignment model. Select accounting and consulting firms have extensive experience surrounding the integration and execution of these arrangements, both from a financial perspective as well as a strategic vantage point.

This course will instruct participants on how various forms of alignment are structured and the legal issues, such as the Anti-Kickback Statute, Civil Monetary Penalties, and Stark law, are implicated in such arrangements.
