Wolters Kluwer Health Law Daily and Health Reform WK-Edge

Leonard Lipsky, a Member of the Firm in the Health Care and Life Sciences practice, in the firm’s New York office, was quoted in two Wolters Kluwer newsletters, Health Law Daily and Health Reform WK-Edge, in “Strategic Perspectives: Are ACOs 'Truly Here to Stay' or 'A Passing Fad'” by Kelly J. Rooney.

Following is an excerpt:

Lipsky brought up organizations choosing to participate in non-MSSP ACOs, noting: “Non-Medicare ACO models have become increasingly popular as states and payers are seeking ways of piloting and transitioning to value-based care for Medicaid populations. Many ACO models also permit providers to be accountable for the care of patients with nongovernmental health care coverage. New York, for example, permits state ACOs to contract with insurers and self-funded employers.”
