The Women in Healthcare Leadership Collaborative (WHLC) invites you to join us for a new 2-part Series on Physician Compensation, starting on September 30, 2021. 

Led by Sheppard Mullin’s regulatory attorneys, Part 1 of the series will review critical changes made to the “group practice” definition of the Stark Law that are set to take effect on January 1, 2022, and which will impact physician compensation structures.  Physician-owned practices should be aware of these fast approaching changes and make necessary adjustments to ensure continued compliance with the Stark Law.  We will discuss both the nature of these changes and potential strategies to adjust compensation methodologies. 

For Part 2 of the series, we are partnering with experts in the industry to take a deeper dive into structuring effective physician compensation models, whether you are in a fee-for-service or value based context.  Details regarding Part 2 of the series to follow.

We hope to see you there!
