Spencer Fane attorney Julie Roth recently co-authored an article featured in the Association of Healthcare Internal Auditors’ New Perspectives Journal discussing alternative physician compensation arrangements. Julie was joined by Tynan Kugler, Consulting Principal at PYA, and Susan Thomas, Consulting Manager at PYA.
The article, “Show Me the Money! Audit physician compensation arrangements,” explains the importance of conducting thorough audits on all types of physician financial arrangements. Julie and her co-authors outline all the necessary components to ensure compensation compliance, including medical directorship, reporting under the Sunshine Act, and audit strategy.
“Your regular, detailed audits of all types of physician financial arrangements can provide your organization with the information needed to proactively identify potential risks, as well as to assure regulatory compliance,” the authors explained in the article. “Alternative physician compensation arrangement audits, including the resulting improvement plans, can help build lasting protection for your organization’s finances, reputation and culture.”
