CMS finalizes new exceptions and clarifications to Stark Law

On October 30, 2015, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) issued the final CY 2016 Physician Fee Schedule rule (the Final Rule), which includes new exceptions and several helpful clarifications to the Stark regulations. The Final Rule updates the Stark regulations to accommodate delivery and payment system reforms, reduce burden and facilitate compliance.

For a comprehensive outline of the new exceptions and clarifications included in the Final Rule, see the latest Health Care Alert prepared by Claire Turcotte of the law firm Bricker & Eckler.
