Federal Government Proposes New Tougher Stark Law Regulations (Stark Law)

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has just proposed new tougher regulations under the Stark Law (Self-Referral Law). The new regulations modify a number of physician self-referral provisions with the intent "to close loopholes that have made the Medicare program vulnerable to abuse."

The proposed regulations bear close scrutiny by physicians, as the proposed regulations may make it harder for physicians to comply with the federal Stark Law (Self-Referral Law). If you have any questions regarding the Stark Law, the new proposed regulations, or would like to receive a copy of the proposed regulations, please feel free to contact the Raymond Iryami Law Firm.

The proposed regulations are expected to be finalized in the fall, after public comments have been received. The deadline for submitting comments is August 31, 2007. Once finalized, the new regulations would take effect January 1, 2008.
