Commercial Reasonableness of Physician Compensation—Analytical Update with MACRA
October 1, 2018 Noon Mountain time (MT)
CPE: 2 hours

Program Description
With recent healthcare reform initiatives, a major paradigm shift is taking place in the healthcare delivery system. The passage and implementation of Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA), as well as legislative discussion regarding the viability and sustainability of current fraud and abuse laws, may significantly change the requisite analysis required to determine whether a physician compensation arrangement does not exceed fair market value and is a commercially reasonable transaction. This session will focus on the potential impact of MACRA and other reform initiatives on related changes in the methodology and analytical thresholds for the commercial reasonableness of physician compensation arrangements, and valuation professionals with the tools to understand and thrive in this paradigm shift.

  • Articulate the various definitions of commercial reasonableness as promulgated by federal statutes, regulations, and case law
