The recent release of the proposed Accountable Care Organization regulations by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services along with the release of related content by CMS, the Health and Human Service Office of Inspector General, the Federal Trade Commission, the Department of Justice, and the Internal Revenue Service provide long-awaited details of the Medicare Shared Savings Program and ACO landscape. But still, many questions remain unanswered, and the recent releases raise new uncertainties.

Please join us on April 21 for a webinar discussing these important developments and their implications.

In this concise and focused presentation, Crowell & Moring panelists will discuss:

  • Highlights from the proposed regulations, including acceptance into the Medicare Shared Savings Program, the two available ACO risk models, quality and financial performance measures and methodologies, patient notification and choice, and more.
  • The new antitrust "safety zone," mandatory antitrust review for ACOs exceeding market share thresholds, and how ACOs will be assessed and reviewed by the DOJ and FTC according to their proposed statement of antitrust enforcement policy.
  • The impact of CMS' and OIG's proposed waivers of the physician self-referral law, the anti-kickback statute, and certain provisions of the civil monetary penalty law on providers participating in the Medicare Shared Savings Program.
  • Key tax questions posed by the IRS.
