Each year, the federal government publishes in the Federal Register (federalregister.gov) a listing of certain categories of D h S by CP t code. The list is generally effective January 1 of that year. Who is an immediate family member? The Stark Law regulations define an immediate family member as husband, wife, birth or adoptive parent, child, sibling, stepparent, stepchild, stepbrother, stepsister, father-in-law, mother-in-law, son-in-law, daughter-in-law, brother-in-law, sister-in-law, grandparent or grandchild, and spouse of a grandparent or grandchild. What is a financial relationship? A direct or indirect ownership or investment interest in any entity that furnishes D h S, or a direct or indirect compensation arrangement with an entity that furnishes D h S. A direct financial relationship exists if remuneration passes between the referring physician (or a member of the physician's immediate family) and the entity furnishing the D h S without any intervening people or entities. There is an indirect financial relationship if between the referring physician (or immediate family member) and the entity furnishing the D h S there is an unbroken chain of any number of people or entities having ownership or investment interests. What is the purpose of the Stark Law exceptions? The Stark Law is a strict liability statute. The intent or lack of intent of a party is not relevant for purposes of the government's analysis to determine Stark Law compliance. For physicians and health care lawyers, making sure that an arrangement fits squarely within the exception is critical. The requirements in an exception must be satisfied at the time when the referral is made for the D h S.
