Key Legal Considerations when Structuring Physician Employment Agreements


Compliance with the Stark Law has become more than just a compliance issue. It is an Enterprise Risk Management issue, as the substantial awards and settlements in recent enforcement actions indicate. Managing their compliance and enterprise risk by ensuring that their physician employment arrangements are defensible under the Stark Law is now an imperative for medical groups, hospitals, and health systems that seek to switch to more innovative compensation structures.

The ways by which they can do this will be the content of a webinar that is being organized by MentorHealth, a leading provider of professional trainings for the healthcare industry.

A thorough learning session

Joseph Wolfe, an attorney with Hall, Render, Killian, Heath & Lyman, P.C., the largest health care focused law firm in the country, will be the speaker at this webinar.
