Now that the PPACA is law, the ACO-related provisions have been well-publicized and discussed, and their long-term implications are beginning to be grasped. The question is: what now? This webinar will explore the structural and regulatory considerations that provider organizations are facing as they contemplate their ACO positioning, both between now and January 1, 2012 -- CMS' deadline for having the ACO program up and operating -- and thereafter. These considerations include assessing their complement of employed and contracted providers; their ability to coordinate care and manage cost; the economics of bundled and global payments; their payer relationships; the potential regulatory approaches to be taken by CMS and state governments; the new compliance implications of increased quality measurement and reporting; and the challenges associated with the continued applicability of the Stark, antikickback, CMP and antitrust laws and current enforcement policies.

This panel will be led by Doug Hastings, with participation of the General Counsel of three different types of provider organizations that are actively assessing their ACO strategies.

Top Five Practical Tips:

. The PPACA provisions that matter most

. Real world insights into ACO building blocks

. The questions to be asking CMS and state governments

. Considerations around new entity formation

. Assessing the regulatory hurdles
