Product Description

Don't miss out on your portion of the incentives. Here's what you need to know to make the cut.

PPACA (the health reform act) provides financial incentives for providers who are part of an "accountable care organization" or ACO.

Although the law gives some idea of what an ACO is, it leaves out a lot of details like what kind of organizations qualify and how they are to be formed and certified.

At minimum, ACOs will be an integrated entity comprised of doctors, hospitals and other health care providers assuming responsibility, as a group, for Medicare and other patients assigned to them.

In this 1-hour audio conference, Wayne J. Miller Esq. discusses the latest information on how ACOs will be formed and qualified, as well as organizations already positioned to meet ACO requirements. You'll also hear possible models for forming new entities.

PLUS: Wayne will cover the issues facing providers who may want to join such organizations and major regulatory hurdles to overcome.

Take at look at what Wayne will cover:

  • Why form an accountable care organization?
  • How to form an organization: arrangements that may qualify
  • Organizations that may already meet the standards
  • Critical contract issues for hospital and physician members of ACO
  • Latest Medicare rules regarding ACO formation and operation
  • Should physicians sell or integrate their practices with hospitals?
  • Avoiding Stark law and fraud and abuse liability risk
  • Antitrust attacks and other regulatory issues
  • Short and long-term steps necessary to be ready for ACO implementation

Who should attend? Individual physicians, medical groups, outpatient clinics, hospitals, long term care facilities, health care consultants, and health care mangers.
