The newly revised and greatly expanded third edition of Physician Recruitment and Compensation Arrangements Practice Guide offers expert guidance in the complex area of physician recruitment and retention by exempt organizations. This comprehensive guide addresses the three most critical elements impacted by physician recruitment and compensation: the Medicare and Medicaid Anti-kickback Statute, the Stark Law, and federal tax-exemption rules and implications for tax-exempt entities. These issues are analyzed primarily as to incentives and payments made directly and indirectly by exempt organizations.
• Guidance on avoiding the risks involved in this area of the law, such as loss of tax-exempt status, exclusion from Medicare and Medicaid, and other serious penalties
• An in-depth review of the interplay of federal regulations in the fraud and abuse, self-referral, and tax exemption areas affecting physician recruitment and retention
• Compliance issues faced by healthcare organizations in three critical areas impacted by the development of compensation packages and other incentives: the Medicare and Medicaid Anti-kickback Statute, the Stark Law, and federal tax-exempt status issues including inurement, excess benefit, and private benefit
• Enhanced coverage of the tax issues through use of nonprecedential documents to supplement case law and binding guidance
• Insight into the IRS' current views and administrative practices
• An extensive variety of workpapers and charts summarizing key elements of, and providing tools to assist in compliance with, the three main regulatory areas
