Attached is a PDF issued by CMS regarding blanket waivers of the Stark Law in order to allow physicians and hospitals to adjust 18 different potential financial relationships in order to deal with the COVID-19 emergency.  The waivers were issued on March 30, 2020, with a retroactive effective date of March 1, 2020.  They will terminate in accordance with conditions established in Section 1135(e) of the Social Security Act, which essentially provides they will be tied to the duration of the national emergency.  Please contact us if you have further questions regarding these issues.
