Reed Stephens said that Tuomey Healthcare System’s settlement of a record judgment against it for violating the Stark Act, as well as the case itself, shows the high stakes involved in allegations of Stark Law and False Claims Act violations. “The outcome is a reflection of how challenging it is for hospitals to manage the risk that they run under the highly complex Stark law regulations,” Mr. Stephens noted.
