CMS Publishes New Proposed Stark Law Rule
NATA
On July 15, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services published the Calendar Year 2016 Physician Fee Schedule Proposed Rule. The Proposed Rule includes several clarifications and proposed modifications to the Stark Law regulations, including the creation of two new exceptions. The Proposed Rule appears to reflect two key themes:
  • CMS is seeking to ease the burden of certain Stark Law requirements, thereby reducing the need for providers to self-disclose certain "technical" violations of the Stark Law.
  • CMS has proposed changes to the Stark Regulations and seeks comments regarding whether additional guidance and rule-making is needed to promote health reform initiatives, including alternate payment models and value-based purchasing.
Drinker Biddle provides the top ten Stark Law takeaways from the Proposed Rule.

In Summer Heat, Athletic Trainers Call for Safety Measures
Reuters
A thousand-dollar expenditure for an automated external defibrillator could mean the difference between life and death for some young athletes, a cost that one Little Rock, Arkansas high school knows too well. A heart abnormality caused 16-year-old Antony Hobbs to collapse during his Parkview High basketball game in 2008. Hobbs was unaware of his condition, likely present since birth. Though an ambulance responded, he died about an hour after tip-off.

Athletes under the age of 18 are the most vulnerable when it comes to sustaining concussions. Accurately diagnosing concussions on the field of play is an important way to protect them, according to research published in the Journal of Child Neurology. "The continued play by a child who has sustained a concussion puts them at significant increased risk," said Jacob Resch, associate professor at the University of Virginia's Curry School of Education.

When Should the Coach Not Be Boss?
The Daily Courier
With colleges on the cusp of preseason football practice, there's an off-field battle worth keeping an eye on: Coaches vs. medical personnel. Head coaches at a majority of the big-time college football programs insist on hiring, supervising and firing the doctors and athletic trainers that attend to their student-athletes. Not surprisingly, medical practitioners don't believe the practice is in the best interest of the student-athletes.
