Provider-Based Clinics: Physician Supervisory Changes and What to Expect in the Future

Congress has acted to delimit the increase in physician practice acquisition by hospitals. This action was through the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2015, Section 603. Hospitals have been increasingly establishing provider-based clinics of all types, both on-campus and off-campus. The provider-based rule (PBR) is complex and there are definite ambiguities. Although hospitals can enjoy the benefits of increase in their revenues due to provider-based clinics, being compliant with its rules and regulations is a challenge in itself. There are many confusions regarding the latest changes in the supervisory requirements for provider-based operations, it has brought about fresh compliance challenges.

In this session, expert speaker Duane C. Abbey, Ph.D., will address the overall function and purpose of the provider-based rule. He will also be providing important information regarding physician supervisory changes along with a discussion of the future of provider-based clinics. The possibility of equalization of payments between freestanding and provider-based operations will also be explored in this session.
