Time (All Sessions): 90 minutes

The current health care enforcement climate combines aggressive enforcement efforts, a hyper-technical regulatory framework and challenges to physician compensation arrangements based on allegations involving fair market value and commercial reasonableness.   In this four-part webinar series, the Fair Market Value Affinity Group will bring together top legal and valuation experts to discuss the collision between physician compensation arrangements, fair market value, commercial reasonableness and process.  The webinar series is designed to explore recent enforcement and valuation trends, will recap the underlying regulatory guidance on fair market value and commercial reasonableness, and most notably, will explore the developing best practices that some health care organizations are adopting to streamline their process in order to enhance defensibility in case their physician compensation arrangements are ever challenged.

Level of Difficulty: Intermediate/ Advanced

  • The Collision of Fair Market Value and Commercial Reasonableness in Physician Compensation Arrangements: An Exploration of Recent Trends, Industry Guidance and Developing Best Practices, Part II (Intermediate/ Advanced)- On Demand Recording

    Recorded On: 01/17/2018

    Oversight over physician compensation arrangements within a health care organization typically rests with the governing board and under many structures the oversight is delegated down to a compensation committee of the board. The oversight ultimately developed by a healthcare organization is often driven by corporate structure, risk tolerance or other factors. This webinar will explore the expanding role of boards and committees in physician compensation oversight, in decision-making and in day-to-day policy and process implementation. Our panel of experts will discuss emerging governance structures, reporting and documentation requirements, approval processes, and other developing best practices in the industry that can help appropriately engage the board and/ or committee in oversight, while avoiding meddling.

  • The Collision of Fair Market Value and Commercial Reasonableness in Physician Compensation Arrangements: An Exploration of Recent Trends, Industry Guidance and Developing Best Practices, Part III (Intermediate/ Advanced)- On Demand Recording

    Recorded On: 02/07/2018

    The government has noted in its guidelines on physician compensation that responsibility for determining fair market value ultimately rests with the parties to the arrangement and that health care organization must have in place processes for making and documenting reasonable, consistent and objective determinations of fair market value. In order to meet these obligations, health care organizations must develop a right-sized process that can be implemented effectively and consistently. This webinar will survey a continuum of approaches (both internal and external) for determining and documenting fair market value and commercial reasonableness, including a practical discussion about new industry tools that are being incorporated into physician compensation processes.

    Time: 90 minutes
    Session Format: On Demand Recording

    Compensation processes are only as strong as their implementation and recent enforcement actions have highlighted the dangers of establishing, but then failing to consistently follow a physician compensation process.  This webinar will focus on the importance of developing a systematic compensation process that appropriately integrates legal, finance, compliance, management, and business line leaders to support informed decision-making.   Our panelists will discuss emerging contracting  processes, documentation guidelines, approval requirements, and other developing best practices that healthcare organizations may adopt to streamline their process. Highlights of the webinar will include:

    • Customary roles of health care departments (e.g., finance, compliance, etc.) in physician compensation and contracting processes.
    • Development of parameters and thresholds that may trigger departmental involvement.  
    • Distinguishing the roles of legal and finance when establishing financial terms, and when documenting fair market value and commercial reasonableness.
    • Determining which steps in the process can (or should) be carried out under the attorney-client privilege.
