This one-day seminar is a “must go” for any entrepreneurial physician practice that wants to understand cutting-edge changes in the marketplace and various strategic options for medical groups to maximize their enterprise value and the compensation earned by their physicians over the next five years. Such options include possible sale or affiliation transactions with (i) private equity-funded physician companies, (2) payor-sponsored physician groups, (3) national strategic physician organizations, (4) hospitals and health systems, or (5) regional mega-physician groups.

Affordable Care Act implementation is well underway, and Medicare’s reimbursement methodology for physician services is undergoing a major transformation—which, in turn, alters Medicaid and private-payor reimbursement processes. Most recently, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services issued regulations regarding the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (“MACRA”) and the Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (“MIPS”), and at the same time, bundled payment programs are being expanded.  

All of these developments have significantly increased physician group consolidation transactions because substantial capital investment and economies of scale are required to better equip physicians with the advanced IT, care management, clinical integration, and other resources needed to be successful and profitable in the changing environment.
