    • Rural Health and the Law: Problems, Public Health Approaches, and Potential Legal Solutions, All Parts

      In the wake of the 2016 presidential elections, media attention was drawn to the increasingly divergent economic fortunes of rural and urban America.

      Session Dates: September 12, October 10, November 14
      Time (All Sessions): 2:00-3:30 PM Eastern (90 minutes) 
      Sessions Format: Live Webinars

      In the wake of the 2016 presidential elections, media attention was drawn to the increasingly divergent economic fortunes of rural and urban America. Rural areas have suffered from high rates of outmigration and loss of human resources, and some predominantly rural regions, especially in Appalachia, have seen marked declines in life expectancy and other health indicators. One key factor in this decline has been diminished access to healthcare: rural hospitals, in contrast to their well-funded urban counterparts, have struggled to keep the lights on. Hospital groups have increasingly consolidated operations, leaving rural hospitals understaffed and underfunded. Hospital closures are far from the only negative health trend impacting rural areas: the opioid epidemic too, is concentrated primarily in rural areas. Participants in all three programs will come away with an understanding of drivers of this disparity, and innovations in public health and healthcare to address these issues. Legal and policy solutions will be discussed including the use of telemedicine, medical-legal partnerships, rural accountable care organizations, and county-based care integration models.

      This webinar series will serve to bring awareness to the unique health needs of rural communities, and o inform and educate public health and health lawyers, their clients, and partners across the health care system, about the growing disparity between rural and urban health outcomes, and ways that laws and legal frameworks can be used to address this issue. This monthly series will begin in September and end in November, on November 14th, one week before the nation celebrates National Rural Health Day.

    • The Stark Proposed Rule: Exploring the New FMV, Commercial Reasonableness and Volume or Value Guidance - On Demand Recording

      Recorded On: 11/12/2019

      On October 9, CMS issued a highly anticipated proposed rule aimed at modernizing and streamlining the Federal Stark Regulations. The proposed rule contains extensive guidance on three critical regulatory requirements, fair market value, commercial reasonableness and the prohibition on “taking into account” the volume or value of a physician’s referrals. Notably, CMS proposed modifications to the FMV definition, a new definition for commercial reasonableness and a bright-line standard for circumstances where compensation will be considered to “take into account” the volume or value of referrals. Join leading industry experts, including the Chief Legal Officer for CMS, for an AHLA webinar that will focus on the proposed rule and this important Stark guidance.

    • New CMS Program Integrity Final Rule is Here - Guideposts for Operationalizing the New Disclosure Requirements - On Demand Recording

      Recorded On: 11/06/2019

      On September 5, 2019, CMS released a final rule with comment period called "Medicare, Medicaid, and Children's Health Insurance Programs; Program Integrity Enhancements to the Provider Enrollment Process."

      Time: 90 minutes
      Session Format: On Demand Recording

      On September 5, 2019, CMS released a final rule with comment period called "Medicare, Medicaid, and Children's Health Insurance Programs; Program Integrity Enhancements to the Provider Enrollment Process." Finalizing a proposed rule from 2016, CMS has imposed new enrollment disclosure requirements and created new avenues for denying or revoking enrollments across the range of providers and suppliers that participate in Medicare, Medicaid, or CHIP. Beginning November 4, 2019, providers and suppliers will be required to disclose certain current or past “affiliations” with other providers and suppliers if those affiliated providers and suppliers have been subject to a “disclosable event.” One key to understanding the impact of this final rule is understanding the broad scope of both “affiliation” and “disclosable events.” Hospitals, SNFs, physicians, and other providers and suppliers will need to keep track of a new range of conduct among a new range of relationships. Failure to track and disclose these affiliations will be at one’s peril, as CMS has authority to deny or revoke an enrollment if it determines that an affiliation presents “an undue risk of fraud, waste, or abuse” or if the provider or supplier failed to disclose the affiliation. The goals of this webinar will be to describe key concepts in the final rule and give those representing providers and suppliers guideposts for how to operationalize the new affiliation tracking that CMS has imposed. The webinar will focus on practical examples and takeaways.
