Fremont, CA, September 8, 2016: NetZealous LLC, a provider of professional trainings in the areas of regulatory compliance, human resources, healthcare and IT, offers trainings from experts on the latest changes into Stark laws, which became operational from January 1, 2016.

NetZealous LLC imparts these trainings from its well-known brand that provides professional trainings in the areas of healthcare, MentorHealth. With the help of these trainings, professionals in the healthcare industry will be clear about how to apply these changes into their practice and avoid penalties that could accrue from non-implementation.

Background to the legislation:

The Physician Self-Referral Law, called the Stark Law more popularly, was primarily promulgated with the intention of prohibiting physician referrals for certain kinds of stated health services that are payable by Medicare or Medicaid to an entity with which the physician or a person who is from her immediate family has any kind of pecuniary relationship. There are exceptions, in which case this rule does not apply.

On October 30, 2015, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services came up with a revised plan to this law in its document called the 2016 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule, or what is called the “Final Rule”. This plan adds fairly significant changes to the Stark Law.

Reforming healthcare delivery and payment system reform, reducing burdens, ensuring and engendering compliance, and issuance of new exceptions to the Stark Law are some of the purposes of this Final Rule. Except what the Stark Law defines as “ownership or investment interest”, which is about the extent of a physician’s ownership in a physician-owned hospital; all other regulations came into effect from January 1, 2016. The ownership or investment interest clause will become effective on January 1, 2017.

NetZealous LLC’s role in offering trainings:

Getting complete knowledge of these changes is absolutely necessary for healthcare professionals for whom these legislations are part of their daily work. Understanding the exact nature and implications of these changes is very important, because inability on their part to execute the provisions as they are amended could invite punitive actions from the authorities.

It is to avoid getting into situations like this that healthcare professionals need to undertake professional trainings from a reputable provider of healthcare trainings like NetZealous LLC. MentorHealth, one of its primary brands that deals with professional trainings for this sector; is the ideal destination for professionals to undertake trainings.

NetZealous LLC’s experts, who are highly recognized for their work, offer these trainings, with which healthcare professionals can stay updated and clear about the latest amendments being sought into the Stark Law.

Knowledge about the new exceptions:

Professional trainings from NetZealous LLC help participants understand the exception to the current laws, which constitute the most important element of these new changes. The exceptions relate to the following:

Help in compensating a practitioner who is not a physician

Arrangement relating to timesharing

o   Amendments into the term of contract
