Urgent Reminder to Physician-Owned Hospitals: Action Required by March 1, 2014

Posted on February 11, 2014 in Health Law News

Published by: Hall Render

Are you a Physician-Owned Hospital?

Have you submitted your Hospital’s annual ownership and investment interest reporting data?

Do you know that Physician-Owned Hospitals have until March 1, 2014 to report ownership and investment information required by the Affordable Care Act?

Physician-Owned Hospitals must report ownership and investment information by filing Medicare Enrollment Application CMS-855A at least once annually.  Failure to file this information on time could result in a permanent loss of the Physician-Owned Hospital’s grandfathered status provided under the Stark Law whole hospital and/or rural provider exception. More information about this reporting requirement can be found here.

If you have any questions or would like additional information on this requirement, please contact Andrea Impicciche at 317.977.1578 or, Alyssa James at 317.429.3640 or or your regular Hall Render attorney.
