Advisory Law Group Webinar to Focus On Kickback Schemes In The Hospital Setting

Advisory Law Group has announced two webinars on the morphing of so-called "Company Model" arrangements from the ambulatory surgery center to the hospital setting.
Feb. 5, 2013 - PRLog -- Los Angeles and Santa Barbara, CA – February 5, 2013 -- Mark F. Weiss, attorney-at-law, of Advisory Law Group, a nationally recognized expert on the business and legal issues affecting physicians, will present two webinars on the expansion of the so-called "Company Model" arrangement from the outpatient facility setting to the hospital setting. The first is entitled "If Surgeons Can Legally Profit From Anesthesia At An ASC, Will Hospital Anesthesia & Radiology Be Next?" and the second is entitled "How To Block Referring Physicians From Profiting From Your Hospital-Based Anesthesia or Radiology Services."

"For several years, there's been a growing trend among ambulatory surgery centers and their surgeon owners: establishing entities to coordinate the provision of anesthesia and other specialty services to their patients – and to capture the profits," Weiss said.

"This is the so-called 'Company Model' structure. It's often put into place to skirt what can't be accomplished outright: receiving a share of fees in return for referrals. If surgery centers or their owners simply demanded a kickback from the anesthesiologists and other specialists it would clearly be illegal, a violation of the Federal Anti-Kickback Statute as well as of state law."

"More recently, the Company Model has morphed beyond the outpatient setting and is beginning to be seen in several variants in the hospital setting."

The first webinar will take place on February 7, 2013, and the second on February 28, 2013. Each begins at 4:00 p.m. PST. Further information and registration is available at
