Stark Laws: Then and Now

Trustee Magazine (February 2008)

February 01, 2008

The February 2008 issue of Trustee magazine contains an article entitled "Stark Laws: Then and Now" which discusses the Physician Self-Referral Act (better known as the Stark law). Gary Herschman, Chair of the Firm’s Health and Hospital Law Practice Group, was interviewed for this article. According to Herschman, “The recent changes to the Stark law nevertheless give guidance on how CMS is going to enforce the law and how the agency is going to view certain exceptions to the law.” He continues, “Trustees will want to know that their hospital’s arrangements with doctors are in compliance with these changes and that there is an organized process that sets forth the term of each arrangement.”
