Clearwater, FL (PRWEB) April 08, 2011
Gassman, Bates & Associates, P.A. in Clearwater Florida announces that it has reconfigured the recently released HHS Accountable Care Organization Regulations to be easier to understand and more accessible to physicians, the press, and other interested parties. Issued by HHS as a 429 page document, the easier to read and navigate product version is available in hard copy and MS Word format and was reduced to 213 pages. Features include acronym definitions throughout the text, a Table of Contents linked to page numbers, and an Index. All pages from the original March 31st HHS release are included, along with the separate pronouncement from the Department of Justice on abatement of the antitrust laws and other pertinent government issued releases.
This text, along with a brief summary of the new Regulations written by attorneys Alan S. Gassman and Martha Sosa can be purchased by non physicians who are not members of the press for $20.00, with all net proceeds going to the All Children’s Hospital Foundation in St. Petersburg, Florida.
Attorney Alan S. Gassman stated “I was pleasantly surprised by the amount of detail and thought that went into the content of this document, but was completely hindered by its presentation. The size of the document and the overabundance of unfamiliar and unnecessary acronyms was overwhelming. There were no page numbers on the Table of Contents. Non lawyers who understand the intent of these proposed rules will be able to get a much better understanding of the details by reading this directly. I hope that this helps to allow for better commentary and input to CMS during the 60 day comment period.”
Alan S. Gassman is an attorney and author who has published over 200 articles in national magazines, journals, and other services. Gassman, Bates & Associates, P.A. represents several hundred physicians in the Tampa Bay, Florida area. Mr. Gassman has been quoted in The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, Medical Economics and many other respected publications.
