Mike Segal, Heather S. Miller, Stephen H. Siegel and Fred Segal of Broad and Cassel’s Health Law Practice Group collaborated on a chapter for the 2013 Health Law and Compliance Update, which was published this month by Aspen Publishers.
The chapter, entitled “Medicare Certified Accountable Care Organizations,” explains the history of the formation of Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) and provides a thorough explanation of the steps necessary to plan and implement an ACO. Topics covered include the Medicare Shared Savings Program, federal antitrust rules and their effect on ACOs, health information technology, ACO tax issues and state law issues.
Readers will benefit from the combined experience of Broad and Cassel’s attorneys, especially since they practice in an area with a high concentration of physician practices. They have a deep understanding of both health law and business planning, and this chapter is packed with information gathered over years of assisting with the clinical integration of physician groups.
In its 10th year of publication, the 2013 Health Law and Compliance Update provides readers with the latest information on emerging issues in health law and health care compliance. Each chapter is written by knowledgeable and experienced professionals from health care organizations and law and consulting firms. The following topics are included in addition to the ACO chapter: compliance-related tax issues, evolution of stroke affiliate programs, Medicare benefits and coverage, delivering effective health care security, compliance program monitoring and auditing methods and techniques.
