On October 19, 2015, Albany Health Care associate Rachel Ryan co-presented a webinar titled, “Impact of Value-Based Reimbursement on Physician Compensation and Fair Market Value,” which provided an overview of federal laws impacting physician compensation models along with recent changes to the Civil Monetary Penalties Law and proposed changes to Stark Law.
