Hospital joint ventures can produce powerful new capabilities and efficiencies, paving the way for affordable, high-quality care. To deliver on this promise, however, these partnerships need a firm foundation of regulatory compliance and effective governance.
This webinar will review the top regulatory compliance issues that organizations face when developing and operating hospital joint ventures. Join us as we break down the complexity of the Anti-Kickback Statute, Stark Law, licensing and repayment limitations, and tax exemption compliance as they relate to joint ventures. We’ll also discuss the latest developments in hospital joint venture governance, including negotiation and operational strategies for financial consolidation, joint contracting and tax-exemption compliance.
Attendees will come away with a practical understanding of relevant laws and regulations, plus insights into recent regulatory guidance and enforcement actions that apply to joint venture models. Here are a few of the useful topics our speakers will cover:
- How the federal Anti-Kickback Statute and Stark Law apply to hospital joint ventures, including which types of referrals and financial arrangements are prohibited, and which safe harbors may be available
- How to avoid common tax-exempt compliance pitfalls, including considerations for unrelated business income tax, 501(r) requirements, and reporting and documentation obligations
- How to fine-tune joint venture governance to minimize risk and maximize the benefits to your partnership
