AHA responds to CMS's RFI on reducing regulatory burden of the Stark Law

RE: CMS-1720-NC, Request for Information Regarding the Physician Self-referral Law

 

The AHA’s response to the request for information from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services highlights the obstacles hospitals and physicians face in moving to a value-based system while navigating the Stark Law compensation regulations that were built for the very different fee-for-service model. We also recommend specific changes to remove barriers and drive patient-centered care.
