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 IV (Intermediate/ Advanced)

Includes a Live Event on 03/07/2018 at 2:00 PM (EST)

Time: 2:00- 3:30PM (90 minutes)
Session Format:  Live Webinar

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. 

Highlights of the webinar will include:

  • Internal processes for determining and documenting fair market value and commercial reasonableness.
  • Developing best practices for engaging appraisal firms to perform external analyses, including strategies to enhance defensibility, efficiency and confidentiality throughout the valuation process.
  • An overview of the resources and tools available to support fair market value, from salary surveys, to compensation calculators to customized tools available in the industry.
