Hospital Internal and External Relationships

An exception to the Stark law must be complied with to permit physician referrals of DHS to a hospital for inpatient or outpatient hospital services where the referring physician has a financial relationship with the hospital.  The precise exception that will be available will depend upon the nature of the financial relationship between the hospital and physician (e.g., ownership, compensation or both), and the nature of the relationship itself (e.g., provision of services, lease of space and/or equipment and others).
