Healthcare real estate is unique and a myriad of healthcare statutes and regulations create a complex regulatory environment in which health systems must operate daily. Health systems’ real estate arrangements with referral sources face numerous compliance pitfalls, any one of which can trigger a violation under the Stark Law. The compliance pitfalls associated with real estate arrangements can be generally subdivided into two categories: (1) transactional and (2) operational. Transactional compliance pitfalls stem from the actual real estate arrangement and specific structure of the transaction.
