Fair Market Value of Physician Compensation

Fair market value (FMV) compliance for contractual compensation is an ever-present and increasingly complex requirement in transactions with physicians and other referrers. You want your hospital or health system to be in control of FMV compliance on a comprehensive basis.

  • Help you develop an FMV compliance process
  • Provide a high-level annual evaluation of the FMV status of all physician transactions
