Clearwater, FL (PRWEB) April 17, 2011
Gassman, Bates & Associates, P.A. of Clearwater, Florida and Florida wide law firm Broad and Cassel have announced that they are sponsoring a complimentary 30 minute webinar on how Account Care Organizations will function under the new HHS Regulations, and what the possible resulting motivation of hospitals and other providers and suppliers will be to involve patients in these structures.
Mr. Gassman will be joined by health law experts, Mike Segal and Lester Perling of the Broad and Cassel Law Firm, along with Board Certified Internist and medical group CEO Pariksith Singh, M.D. for this informative webinar.
Author and healthcare lawyer, Alan S. Gassman said: “The March 31, 2011 proposed regulations on ACOs shed much light on what CMS and other governmental agencies intend to put into place effective January 1, 2012. Understanding how the money will flow, and what CMS intends to implement will help doctors and their advisors plan on how to participate in and navigate around these entities.”
Healthcare lawyer, Mike Segal, said: “It is too early to completely understand most if not all of these complicated and interactive rules, but many things are clear, and it is not too early to begin looking at the basic structures and mechanisms that will be necessary to handle the inevitable organizations that may greatly improve the delivery of health care, even if by trial and error.”
Please join us for a practical and informative webinar, which will describe the basic financial parameters of how monies will flow into ACOs from Medicare, and what the 5,000 patients under primary care management requirement and 50% or 60% plus of savings sharing rights mean to physician practices and their advisors.
Mr. Gassman, Mr. Segal, Dr. Singh and attorney Martha Sosa of Gassman, Bates & Associates, P.A. have recently published an article on the topic entitled “It’s All In The Math: Financial Mechanisms, Structures and Questions Under the Accountable Care Organization Proposed Regulations.” The article is being published in the April 17, 2011 American Bar Association Health eSource Newsletter.
