The ABCs of ACOs: What do Accountable Care Organizations Mean for How Your Organization Provides Care?



Presented by: Gray Plant Mooty

Breakfast Roundtable and Webinar presented by Gray Plant Mooty’s Health Law practice group

By now, every health care provider has heard something about Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs), a key part of the health care reform law passed earlier this year. But because ACOs are not required to be in place until 2012 and no rules for ACOs have been published, the exact contours of how ACOs will impact care delivery and reimbursement are far from settled. But that does not mean providers should not be preparing for ACOs now. Join members of Gray Plant Mooty’s Health Law team for a roundtable discussion about ACOs and what this important new initiative might mean for your organization. Topics to be covered include, among others:

  • What are some of the important features of ACOs?
  • What are some things providers should consider in participating in an ACO?
  • How will ACOs for Medicare beneficiaries impact how I provide care to my other patients?
  • What are the implications for ACOs posed by the Stark Law, Anti-kickback Statute, and other important regulatory requirements?
  • A discussion of lessons learned from the recent ACO Workshop held jointly by CMS, OIG, and the FTC
