October 9, 2019: Today, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) released long-awaited proposals that modify the physician self-referral (Stark) and anti-kickback laws. The intent of the proposed rules is to create new exceptions that encourage value-based arrangements and allow for increased patient engagement.

MGMA is evaluating these two proposed rules and will develop comments in the coming weeks. For more information, see HHS' press release.
