Beyond Stark: Nevada’s Lesser- Known Physician Self-Referral Laws

By | Press Release

By J. Malcolm DeVoy, Attorney, DeVoy Law

Nevada law imposes obligations upon physicians that are under-appreciated and may foil an otherwise effective compliance program. Medical providers are aware of the federal penalties for kickbacks and impermissible self-referrals under the Anti-Kickback Statute and the Stark Law, which can include civil monetary penalties, exclusion from Medicare and Medicaid, and even criminal prosecution. Many providers believe that if they do not accept Medicare or Medicaid, then their regulatory burden is all but eliminated. This is only partially true. Nevada has long had its own laws against self-referrals that apply to all referrals made by physicians—or others acting at their behest—regardless of payment source.

Nevada’s prohibition on self-referrals is similar to the Stark Law, but distinct enough that compliance with federal law alone does not ensure compliance with state law. Nevada prohibits a physician from referring a patient for any goods or service “related to health care” to any health facility, laboratory, imaging center, or broadly defined “commercial establishment,” in which the referrer has a financial interest. A “financial interest” is defined as an “ownership or other interest” held by the referrer or the referrer’s family member, including immediate family, cousins, aunts, uncles, grandparents, and certain in-laws as well.

To satisfy this definition, the referrer’s interest must provide compensation to the physician (or family member) that varies based on the volume or value of goods and services provided due to referrals. Regulations provide examples of what payments would qualify under this definition. These include finder’s fees, income-sharing agreements, debt instruments, leases, or other relationships where the referring physician’s compensation is tied to the value or quantity of goods or services referred to the business.

Like the Stark Law, Nevada’s prohibition on self-referrals contains exceptions to its application, and several of the exceptions under Nevada law are similar to the exceptions that exist for the Stark Law. For example, referrals within a group practice of physicians are permitted. Similarly, referrals to large, publicly traded companies in which the physician is an investor are allowed. Recognizing the challenges faced in rural Nevada as well, certain referrals that otherwise would be prohibited are permitted based on geographic factors.

These exceptions to Nevada’s prohibition on self-referrals are narrowly drawn and limited in number. Nevada’s prohibitions on physician self-referral have fewer exceptions than the Stark Law, which sets forth exemptions within the statute itself, and still more exceptions within the Code of Federal Regulations. The exceptions to the Nevada law that do exist are less developed than those accompanying the Stark Law, which have been examined and explained by the United States Department of Health and Human Services over the span of decades.

Any violation of this law, which is written to impose strict liability, is a misdemeanor. Physicians may also face professional discipline for violating Nevada’s self-referral prohibitions, or an investigation by the Nevada Department of Health and Human Services. Loss or impairment of a professional license, and one’s livelihood, is never worth the short-term gain of improper referrals. For that reason, it is crucial for physicians to ensure their referral practices comply not only with federal law, but even Nevada’s lesser-known laws as well.

UNLV Attains Tier 1 Research Status

By | Featured, News

University joins the ranks of just 120 institutions nationwide classified by Carnegie as “very high research activity” – or R1 – the gold standard for university research metrics

UNLV advances research efforts.

NLV’s drive to rise among the nation’s top public research universities took a major step forward this week when it was elevated to R1 “very high research activity” status by the Carnegie Classification of Institutions of Higher Education.

R1 is the gold standard for university research classifications, and out of 4,000 institutions nationwide, UNLV now is one of just 120 with the distinction. UNLV had been classified as “high research activity,” or R2, in Carnegie’s last update in 2015.

The news comes as UNLV continues to press forward on its Top Tier Initiative, a campuswide strategic plan to join the ranks of the nation’s top public universities in research, education, and community impact by 2025. This plan includes earning the top classification by Carnegie.

“This achievement is validation of the commitment and efforts of many individuals, and a step along our journey for UNLV to be the very best it can be,” said UNLV President Marta Meana. “Reaching the highest Carnegie classification is years in the making and will have a wide-ranging impact from recruitment of top faculty and students, to broadening our research efforts, to attracting new businesses that will boost economic growth in our state. This is a proud day for UNLV and the community, and we will continue our meaningful work in Southern Nevada and beyond.”

According to Carnegie’s classification website, data from the National Center for Education Statistics and National Science Foundation (NSF) surveys is pulled to determine the classifications. The organization calculates research activity in a variety of categories, including but not limited to doctoral degrees granted, NSF-reported research expenditures, and the number of post-doctoral and non-faculty researchers.

NSF-reported research expenditures are on the rise at UNLV, from $42 million in fiscal year 2015 to $66 million in 2017. The university has also grown its doctoral programs across the disciplines and is awarding more doctoral degrees overall, moving from 124 research doctoral degrees in 2013-14 to 162 degrees in 2017-18.

“We could not have reached this major milestone of our Top Tier strategic plan without all the hard work, dedication and ongoing collaboration among our college deans, chairs, faculty, and staff,” said UNLV Provost and Executive Vice President Diane Chase. “It is a testament to the spirit of our UNLV faculty, staff and students whose creativity and innovation drive so much of our research.”

UNLV becomes the first institution in Nevada to earn Carnegie’s highest distinction, and joins eight other universities as new arrivals for 2018: Dartmouth College, Oklahoma State University, Drexel University, Mississippi State University, Binghamton University, the University of Colorado, Denver, the University of Auburn, and the University of Alabama.

The Carnegie Classification has been the leading framework for classifying the research activities of colleges and universities in the U.S. for more than 40 years. The first classification was published in 1973, nearly 20 years before UNLV awarded its first Ph.D. in English in 1991.

UNLV’s first Carnegie designation was earned in 1987, when it was classified as a “Comprehensive I” institution, recognizing its offering of graduate education through master’s degrees. Seven years later, UNLV was reclassified as a “Comprehensive Master’s-granting University,” with more than 40 master’s degrees, and earned a ”Doctoral/Research University-Intensive” designation in 2000.

Since 2000, UNLV has greatly expanded its graduate degree programs campuswide, which includes a School of Dental Medicine and the Boyd School of Law, both firsts for Nevada, and a School of Public Health. UNLV awarded 171 professional practice degrees – in law and dental medicine – last year, with those numbers expected to rise with the 2017 launch of the UNLV School of Medicine.
About UNLV

UNLV is a doctoral-degree-granting institution of more than 30,000 students and 3,500 faculty and staff that is recognized as “very high research activity” by the Carnegie Classification of Institutions of Higher Education. UNLV offers a broad range of respected academic programs and is on a path to join the top tier of national public research universities. The university is committed to recruiting and retaining top students and faculty, educating the region’s diversifying population and workforce, driving economic activity through increased research and community partnerships, and creating an academic health center for Southern Nevada.

Sunrise Hospital Celebrates 60 Years of Patient Care in Las Vegas

By | Featured, News

Local Institution Has Been Helping Valley Residents Since 1958

Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center turns 60 this year. The facility on Maryland Parkway near Desert Inn Road has been seeing patients since 1958. From then until now, the hospital has celebrated a number of achievements, including opening the valley’s first children’s hospital.

“I didn’t think I’d be here for it,” said David Jost, facilities project engineer as he looks at memorabilia on a table.

“This is the oldest blueprint I could find from 1971.”

Items, including newspaper clippings, showcase the 60 year history of the hospital.

“That’s how far it’s grown from that, like a bunch of wings going out, single story to this multi-tower campus that we have now,” Jost said.

Lots of changes in six decades.

Jost as seen many of them during his 35 years working as an engineer.

“I was just looking to break into the electrical trade and they provided me an opportunity here after I did an interview and hired me on the spot and that’s what happened.”

Jost and other staff attended a diamond jubilee celebration at the hospital on Wednesday. An event highlighting the hospital’s accomplishments.

“Our founders brought the first CT scanner to town, brought the first cardiac program to town. Prior to that, folks had to leave and go to California for healthcare,” said CEO Todd Sklamberg, Sunrise Hospital.

Opening the children’s hospital also became another first in the valley.

“Now it’s the most comprehensive facility here, not just in southern Nevada but the entire state,” Sklamberg said.

While the event focuses on the medical campus’s past, there’s also a look to the future which includes building a new five-story tower.

“We’re also adding another 72 beds here at the hospital to meet the needs of the community both today and for the next 10 years,” Sklamberg said.

Jost proudly reflects on his time.

“I’ve been able to be involved in a lot of different projects, a lot of things, a lot of growth and it’s a big deal,” Jost said.

And he looks forward to being a part of the future accomplishments.

The hospital opened with less than 100 medical staff and 62 beds. Now, it boasts a medical staff of 1,400 and 690 beds on a 16-acre campus.

Sunrise Children’s Hospital Critical Care Transport Team Delivers Christmas to Pediatric Heart Children

By | Press Release, Uncategorized

Sunrise Children’s Hospital Critical Care Transport Team helped deliver an early Christmas to families whose children have Congenital Heart Defects (CHD). The Sunrise Children’s Hospital pediatric ambulance pulled up ready to spread Christmas cheer with flashing lights, Christmas décor and the back of the ambulance full of presents. 

“Our Critical Care Transport team is called upon to bring critically ill children to our hospital which can be a scary thing for anyone – especially a child,” said Mark Amox, Chief Operating Officer for Sunrise Children’s Hospital. “It is always gratifying for our team to have a positive interaction and see the kids’ smiling faces as they explore the ambulance full of holiday gifts just for them.”

One of the special recipients was Chloe Manuel who is just three years old. Confined to a wheelchair and struggling developmentally, she is surrounded by a loving family: her mom Yvonne, her dad Antwand; and siblings Anthony and Baylee. Manuel is diagnosed with Wolf-Hirschhorn Syndrome, a rare chromosomal disease that affects one in 50,000 people. However, to us, she is one in a million.

The Children’s Heart Foundation, solely dedicated to funding CHD, brought Chloe’s family to the attention of Sunrise Children’s Hospital. The hospital’s Care Team members from the Pediatric ICU, Pediatric Unit, the ER and the Transport team adopted three families in total.

Governor Sandoval announces $3.3M in funding for new medical school programs

Efforts to Help Keep More Nevadans Developing Skills In-State

Excellent healthcare for all Nevadans a top priority for Governor Brian Sandoval

Governor Brian Sandoval announced the funding of four graduate medical education residency and fellowship programs intended to grow Nevada’s physician workforce. The Governor accepted the recommendations of his Graduate Medical Education (GME) Task Force for distribution of $3,324,520 approved in the executive budget during the 2017 legislative session.

“Ensuring Nevadans have access to high-quality healthcare has been one of my top priorities in office,” Governor Brian Sandoval said. “Growing Nevada’s physician workforce is essential to meeting this goal and funding from this grant will help increase the number of physicians completing their graduate medical education in Nevada.”

According to the State Board of Medical Examiners, there are 175 licensed physicians per 100,000 residents in Nevada, compared to 261.8 per 100,000 nationwide. Within four years, today’s funding is expected to create 5 new residency and fellowship positions across Nevada in high-demand specialties, helping ensure more of Nevada’s medical students will remain in the State to practice medicine.

“Graduate Medical Education is an important part of Nevada’s strategy to grow its physician workforce and increase access to high-quality healthcare. We’re excited that these partnerships will provide new residency programs and state-of-the-art instruction for Nevada’s next generation of doctors,” said Brian Mitchell, Director of the Governor’s Office of Science, Innovation and Technology.

Currently, Nevada produces more undergraduate medical students than it has available residencies and fellowships. Additionally, Nevada currently lacks fellowships in some specialties that are of interest to students. As a result, many highly educated students are forced to leave the state for further training at a time when they are beginning real-world application of their advanced education. The GME Grant funding awarded today will assist the State in attracting, educating, and retaining more doctors for Nevada.

The funding is broken up between the four programs:

  • Valley Health – $961,955
  • Critical Care Medicine – $80,00
  • Critical Care Surgery Fellowship – $1,560,179
  • Geriatrics Fellowship – $722,346

About the GME Task Force: On March 11, 2014, Governor Sandoval issued EO 2014-07 establishing a GME Task Force to develop recommendations for state funding of GME in the 2015 legislative session. The Governor accepted the recommendations and included $10 million for GME in his executive budget in the 2015 session, which was approved by the Legislature. In 2015, the Governor issued EO 2015-30, reestablishing the GME Task Force and charging it with providing recommendations on how to best distribute the $10 million allocated by the Legislature towards improving GME in Nevada. The Task Force developed a Request for Proposals and solicited applications from accreditor-approved GME programs or sponsoring institutions, evaluated the proposals and made recommendations to the Governor for funding. In 2016, the State awarded $10 million in grant funding to ten recipients. In 2017, the Legislature again funded the Governor’s recommendation of $10 million to grow the physician

workforce. The first $5 million was awarded in June to eight applicants. The remaining $1,675,480 will be awarded next spring following a competitive application process. The Task Force is staffed by the

Governor’s Office of Science, Innovation and Technology. More information can be found at http://osit.nv.gov.

Roseman University Introduces Roseman Dental

By | Featured, News

University Increases Services and Maximizes Patient Recruitment Efforts

Since opening in 2009, the Roseman University College of Dental Medicine’s Orthodontic Clinic at the Henderson Campus has helped thousands of patients of all ages reimagine their smiles by providing affordable, high-quality orthodontic treatment.

Roseman Dental sets up for future growth

Last month, the University completed construction of a new dental clinic, located adjacent to the Orthodontic Clinic, to offer general and advanced dentistry. In 2019, the clinic will serve as the home of a new Advanced Education in General Dentistry (AEGD) residency program. In the meantime, the clinic is already providing dental care to patients, and the added services allow patients to access all of their dental needs in one convenient location.

With the expanded services, and additional residency dental programs planned for both the Henderson and South Jordan campuses in the coming years, the Roseman University Marketing Office has implemented a plan to reintroduce all of the College of Dental Medicine clinics under the name Roseman Dental. This allows the University to maximize patient recruitment efforts with consistent messaging and brand identity, bolster referral opportunities between clinics, and to create scalability for future growth.

Next week, a new Roseman Dental Website will be unveiled at rosemandental.com. The Website will serve both the Henderson and South Jordan campuses with campus-specific pages appearing in the Nevada and Utah markets via geotagging. The single Website allows the Marketing Office to manage fewer sites, eliminating redundancy, while also creating an opportunity to implement a more aggressive and targeted digital marketing campaign to recruit patients.

Additionally, fresh photos and videos featuring residents, faculty and patients from both campuses are being used to create new promotional videos, television commercials, print advertisements, brochures and other marketing materials to be rolled out in the New Year.

The College of Dental Medicine social media channels have also been revamped. The Roseman Dental clinics in Henderson can now be found at @RosemanDentalNV and the South Jordan clinics can be found at @RosemanDentalUT on Facebook and Instagram. On Twitter, the clinics at both campuses will be managed through a single account at @RosemanDental.

The Orthodontic Clinic was established as the first clinical practice of the College of Dental Medicine and offers care through the Advanced Education in Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics/MBA (AEODO/MBA) residency program. The program enrolls 10 residents per year and up to four interns. The residents are all dental school graduates and licensed dentists, and are paired with expert board certified or board eligible orthodontic faculty to provide the best care for clinic patients.  The clinic offers an array of orthodontic treatments that include two-phase treatment, traditional metal braces, clear braces, Invisalign®, retainers, and more.

The new Roseman Dental general dentistry clinic in Henderson, along with the dental student, AEGD and urgent care clinics in South Jordan offer a range of services, including dental examinations and x-rays, extractions, tooth sealants, root canals, dental fillings, teeth cleaning, periodontal procedures, dentures, crowns, bridges and implants. Treatment is provided at the Henderson clinic by faculty and resident dentists who are licensed Nevada dentists. Treatment at the South Jordan campus is provided by student dentists enrolled in the Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) program, under the supervision of faculty members who are licensed Utah dentists, or AEGD residents who are also licensed Utah dentists.

Roseman Dental clinics are an affordable option for dental needs, offering treatment at rates that are typically lower than at a traditional dental or orthodontic office. Dental insurance is not required for treatment and payment is accepted in cash, credit or debit cards. The clinics accept Medicaid for procedures that are covered under that plan. Insurance is accepted. For questions regarding insurances or to schedule an appointment, please call 702-968-5222 (Henderson, Nevada) or 801-878-1200 (South Jordan, Utah).

Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center Celebrates 60th Anniversary

By | Hospitals, Press Release, Recognition

A “Big Idea” launched in 1958 to bring quality healthcare to Las Vegas and region transcends time.

Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center welcomed back former employees and hosted current Care Team Members with 35 years’ tenure or greater this week to celebrate the mission, the memories and the medical moments that constitute the hospital’s storied history.

Opening December 14, 1958, Sunrise Hospital was the “big idea” of prominent local businessmen, builders and physicians who envisioned a private hospital that would give local residents more options and access to advanced healthcare.

“McCarran International was no longer the access point to quality healthcare,” said Todd P. Sklamberg, CEO of Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center. “Our founding fathers had confidence in our local leaders and Las Vegas’ ability to build and sustain a first-class medical facility and their vision was absolutely correct.”

With $1.5 million, Sunrise Hospital began serving the community with 62 beds and immediately drew from the expertise of about 50 physicians, 42 registered nurses and a handful of licensed practical nurses, aides and orderlies. Today, the facility is undergoing a $250 million expansion that will bring the bed count to 764. 

Among Nevada healthcare “firsts”, Sunrise Hospital medical leaders performed the first open heart surgery on an adult and a child, opened the first comprehensive children’s hospital featuring a dedicated Cath Lab and ER and fostered accredited rehabilitation services – including the only facility with a Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) certificate housing Nevada’s only inpatient ventilator rehab program. It is Nevada’s first Advanced Comprehensive Stroke Center, is the only National Accreditation Program of Breast Centers in Southern Nevada and continues its premiere role in caring for critically ill infants and children from across the region who need life-sustaining intensive care services.

HISTORY AT A GLANCE:

                                Below is a link to a timeline of Sunrise Hospital accomplishments spanning 60 years:
