This CLE course will guide counsel on structuring value-based contracts and the key considerations related to various value-based care reimbursement models for both single provider groups or a collaboration of providers such as clinically integrated networks. Topics covered will include the value-based enterprise (VBE) framework under the federal Stark Law and Anti-Kickback Statute. The panel will also discuss the key considerations to assure your organization is ready to enter value-based care models and shared financial risk contracts as well as how to mitigate risk.


The healthcare industry continues to shift to value-based care models that reward healthcare providers for improving patient outcomes and quality of services delivered while also containing the increasing cost of healthcare. These models present a number of strategic choices for providers, including the opportunity to earn incentives for providing high-quality, efficient, and coordinated care as well as opportunities to enter into shared financial risk models for a population of patients. Close collaboration with providers across the care continuum is also an important ingredient for success in managing patient populations and new regulatory exceptions exist to facilitate provider collaboration.

Listen as our authoritative panel examines the parties' key considerations when deciding whether to enter into a value-based contract. The panel will also examine the risks and what steps can be taken to mitigate those risks. The panel will also address key provisions in value-based contracts and offer best practices for structuring such arrangements.
