Where a physician has a financial relationship with a designated health service entity, an exception to the Stark law must be complied with to permit physician referrals to that entity for the furnishing of designated health services.  Among the entities that will commonly furnish designated health services are physician group practices, hospitals, academic medical centers, faculty practice plans, independent diagnostic testing facilities and other organizations. 

Other portions of StarkCompliancePlus provide detailed information regarding exceptions that will commonly be used to address financial and referral relationships involving physicians and/or their immediate family members, and common designated health service entities.  This portion of StarkCompliancePlus provides access to information on the full range of exceptions that are provided under the Stark law and final rule, with the listing organized base upon the type of financial relationship (e.g., ownership, compensation or both, provision of services, lease of space and/or equipment and others).
