STARK Violations – Non Compliant Healthcare Referral Agreements
Patient referral relationships and financial incentive arrangements between hospitals and other healthcare services could be found in violation of the current STARK regulations (Non-Compliant Referral Agreements). Hospital contracts, leases and other side agreements are now under intense scrutiny and could prove costly to hospital practices for unintentional violations. Understanding the laws governing referral relationships is essential as well as having the proper coverage in case of an investigation and possible allegations.
