Introduction

Physician-Hospital Contracts Clinic

New Dates and Locations will be Announced Soon!

Hospital-physician contracting never was easy, and it’s getting more complicated every day.

Aside from the fact that the health care delivery and payment systems are undergoing tectonic shifts, government scrutiny of arrangements has ramped up to the point where one misstep can result in ruinous liability or even jail time.

To help you navigate these troubled waters, HortySpringer partners Henry Casale and Dan Mulholland will be presenting a special clinic in Las Vegas where the following hot topics relative to physician-hospital financial relationships will be discussed in detail:

  • Welcome to Brave New World of “Value-Based” Purchasing
  • Medicare Physician Reimbursement Under MACRA
  • Basic Legal Principles for Physician-Hospital Financial Relationships
  • Physician Practice Acquisitions
  • Employment Contract Terms
  • Compensation Models
  • Physician Contracting Under Value-Based Payment
  • How to Structure a Physician Group
  • Provider-Based Status
  • Gainsharing
  • Clinical Co-Management Agreements
  • Exclusive Contracts
  • ER Call Coverage Compensation
  • False Claims Act
  • Fraud and Abuse Update
  • Overpayment Refunds

This seminar will take a practical “hands on” approach, not a boring theoretical discussion of legal concepts.

 

Participation by all individuals is encouraged. Advance notification of any special needs will help
us provide better service. Please notify us at least two weeks in advance of the program.

Registration

Registration fee:

$1,595 Individual

or

$4,950 for a team of four
$   950 for each additional registrant (after a team of four registration)

We design our programs with a team fee because we found that it usually requires at least three or four Board members or physician leaders to implement changes or to move forward on any particular matter.

You can send a team of four to one seminar in one location, or you can register at multiple locations and for multiple programs.

Included With Registration Fee

  • Online Access to slide text, forms, letters, procedures, suggestions for policy elements and more.

Hotel Reservations

All registrants are responsible for making their own hotel reservations. Special group room rates have been established for Horty Springer registrants. The block of rooms being held for registrants will be released 30 days prior to the seminar. Within 30 days of the program, you may not be able to get rooms or receive the special rate.
