Regulatory enforcement agencies intensifying focus on hospital-physician contractual arrangements The Deloitte Forensic Center reports that complying with federal statutes and regulations continues to get more complex for hospitals. Almost all physicians have ethical, mutually beneficial relationships with their hospitals, health systems, and suppliers. That doesn't mean, however, that hospitals or the physicians they enter into contractual arrangements with can ignore required documentation that helps support that the arrangement is valid and meets the appropriate regulatory requirements. Intended to address perceived abuse of Medicare and Medicaid spending, these statutes and their regulations keep growing in scope and in disclosure requirements as public officials strive to address different varieties of healthcare fraud. Regulatory agencies estimate that fraud and self-dealing could be costing Medicare and Medicaid as much as $200 billion per year.
