While an organization can standardize its medical director agreements, it is advisable to ensure that the appropriate legal counsel has given definitive authorization to such agreements.  42 CFR 1001.952 (d) (2): “The agency agreement covers all services provided by the agent to the contracting entity for the duration of the agreement and defines the services to be provided by the agent.” 42 U.S.C. 1395nn(3) (A) (ii): “The agreement covers all services to be provided by the physician.” Principle 8: Compliance program. The agreement should include assurance that the physician will comply with all applicable policies and procedures, as well as the organization`s standards of conduct and the company`s compliance program. Principle 1: written agreement signed by the parties. All medical director agreements should be reflected in a signed written agreement. I, the doctor who signed, represent that I meet the criteria of activity of medical director of the agency EMS and that I agree to exercise the functions of medical director of the agency EMS for the next agency EMS. This checklist does NOT cover all clauses that should be included in an agreement. Additional revisions or languages may be required depending on the following factors and the circumstances of each agreement. This agreement through the Medical Director (this “agreement”) is between Dr.
Tattoff, Inc., a Florida company (the “Tattoff”), William Kirby, D.O., Inc., a medical company (the “Corporation”) and William Kirby, D.O., a person (“doctor”), effective January 1, 2010 (effective date”).  In the OIG Advisory Opinion No. 01-17 (2001), the OIG stated that, although the overall compensation for the contract was not set in advance, all the facts and circumstances, in the circumstances, lead to the conclusion that the risk of fraud and abuse did not increase significantly, but this finding is likely due to the existence of a monthly payment limit. In 2003, the OIG stated in Advisory Advisory Opinion 03-8 that a proposed agreement was not eligible for covert protection, as the total remuneration paid under a management agreement would not be set in advance. Principle 9: Ongoing surveillance. There is a need for regular review and follow-up of all arrangements made for medical directors to ensure that, in all cases, the medical director actually provides the required benefits and receives the compensation provided in his agreement. This type of audit may be part of ongoing audit and follow-up efforts for the entire compliance program. Given the potential complexity of size to diagnose hospital risk effectively through contract/employment of disoriented or inappropriate medical director, below are listed a number of key principles related to medical director agreements and a list of board members questions should ask the organization`s management team. Hospital and health care boards, executives and medical staff executives are exploring bolder strategies to improve patient-centered care, improve patient safety and quality, develop service lines and strengthen economic vitality. The result is that more health organizations are signing contracts with doctors to take a leadership role – leaders of dedicated and oriented physicians are more important than ever to success.
Principle 5: Plan when services will be provided. If benefits are to be lower full-time, the medical director`s agreement should indicate when benefits are provided and when time is expected. Principle 4: fixed term and reasons for terminating the contract. Dates indicating the start and end of the contract period and the date of execution must be provided.
