Valuation and Financial Advisory
Health systems, physician groups, payers, and other healthcare organizations are currently facing significant financial and operational challenges against the backdrop of a changing economic landscape due to healthcare reform. Both for-profit and non-profit entities are seeking ways to optimize capacity, cut costs, grow into new markets, evaluate service lines, and improve quality of care by aligning with physicians and affiliating with other entities. The traditional approaches used to evaluate opportunities historically by payers and providers are not the same methods that will be required to measure sustainability in the new world.
Navigant’s valuation experts have many years of healthcare industry experience and are attuned to legal, regulatory and financial reporting issues affecting valuations in the healthcare industry, including:
- Medicare and Medicaid “fraud and abuse” laws (Anti-Kickback Statute)
- Physician Self-Referral (“Stark”) Regulations
- Internal Revenue Code 501(c)(3) for tax exempt organizations (private inurement and private benefit restrictions)
- State Attorney General review processes and mandates
- Commercial Reasonableness
- State Certificate of Need (CON) laws
- Office of Inspector General (OIG) Advisory Opinions
- FASB Accounting Standards (e.g., Topics: 350, 360, 805, 820)
