Course Materials

This CLE course will prepare counsel for healthcare providers to navigate and comply with significant and complex changes to Medicare reimbursement under healthcare reform.


Since the passage of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), there have been significant revisions to Medicare reimbursement. These changes impact hospitals, physicians, long-term care facilities, inpatient rehabilitation facilities and more.

Medicare reimbursement is now tied to quality of care provided and patient outcomes. Healthcare providers that meet the requirements will receive incentive payments. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services recently issued notices and rules updating the Medicare reimbursement rates.

As hospitals, doctors and other providers operate in a new healthcare environment, counsel must guide them in meeting the new requirements to maximize Medicare reimbursement.

Listen as our panel of healthcare attorneys reviews the changes to Medicare reimbursement under healthcare reform, discusses how they will impact different providers, and offers strategies for responding to the Medicare changes.
