CMS and OIG Promote Value-based Care in Latest Proposed Stark and AKS Rules

CMS and the OIG published proposed changes to the Stark and AKS rules, that, among other changes, focus on value-based arrangements and coordinated care for patients. The proposed Stark rule would add an exception against enforcement for such arrangements, and the proposed AKS rule would add three safe harbors to facilitate the same. The deadline for comments on these proposed rules is December 31, 2019.
