Fair Market Value 2.0:  Continuous Physician Arrangement Auditing & Analytics

How risky are your physician arrangements?

Physician arrangements can be a prominent source of compliance risk to health care organizations, especially as the Office of Inspector General aggressively scrutinizes physician relationships with hospitals to identify Anti-Kickback Statute and Stark Law violations. Historically, fair market value (FMV) and commercial reasonableness studies have been costly and time-consuming.

That’s why we developed FMV 2.0 to help organizations assess and quickly reduce risk—usually in just 60 to 90 days. We understand you want a compliance program that identifies risk, operates efficiently and saves you time and money. Even better, you’d like the ability to effectively scrutinize your contracts and reduce the need for FMV studies.
