Medicare/Medicaid Updates

This session will provide an update on recent and future Medicaid and Medicare topics that will touch upon a wide array of reimbursement issues.

ABC’s & 123’s of Financial Strength

A short course on the rating system used for bonds and the factors/ratios that affect them. It’s not just financial measures in today’s marketplace.

340-b Proposed Rules

CMS has published a number of significant 340b proposed regulations that may significantly reduce the benefits of participation in the program and reduce the savings/revenues currently enjoyed by participants. This session will go through the effects of the proposed rules.

Future of Healthcare Financing Panel Discussion/Luncheon

Financing, a driving force on the healthcare landscape, continues to become more complex. With budgetary pressures on Medicare and Medicaid, pay for performance and federal expectations for investment in technology without regard to costs, executives must constantly monitor the financing landscape. Given these pressures, many questions emerge. Our panel of CFO’s CEO and Expert Consultants will describe their practices, experience and answer questions. This program has been developed and is presented locally by Great Lakes Chapter of the American College of Healthcare Executives. The American College of Healthcare Executives has awarded 1.5 ACHE Face-to-Face Education credit hours to this program. To receive credit, your name MUST appear on the Sign-In Sheet


From an international body of evidence, telehealth has demonstrated improved clinical outcomes in chronic health conditions, including mortality, quality of life, and reductions in hospital admissions. It also has legal challenges and concerns practitioners should be aware of. Much of the guidance for telemedicine or telehealth services comes from the Medícare program and changes occur almost every year. The recently enacted 21st Century Cures Act directs CMS to expand telemedicine services. In addition to this federal law, state laws address such issues as licensure, practice standards, credentialing and privileging, reimbursement, fraud & abuse; medical necessity documentation, privacy & security, contracting issues; indemnification clauses, jurisdiction of medical malpractice claims, which state law governs, are among the selected legal and regulatory issues practitioners need to have knowledge of.
