How the Top 5 Provisions of the New Affordable Care Act Will Affect Your Practice

Archived Webinar


The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), recently upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court, will have ramifications across all aspects of the healthcare sector. How will it affect ophthalmologists as individuals, providers and employers? It is important for small and large practices to understand what is now being required under PPACA and how it will affect them as certain provisions go into effect in the coming years.

In this 60-minute archived webinar, legal experts from Wade, Goldstein, Landau & Abruzzo present what they see as five of the most important provisions that will affect ophthalmology so you don't get caught off guard when these new provisions start.

  • Understand your duties under "Transparency and Program Integrity" provisions, established to: (1) provide patients with more information so that they can better make decisions about their health care and (2) help combat fraud and abuse through disclosure requirements.
  • Get a firm grasp of how revenue offset provisions — which include certain taxes, fees and reporting requirements — will affect you and your practice as an employer and health care provider.
  • Understand if and how provisions relating to the Medicare Shared Savings Program and accountable care organizations (shared savings program under which groups of providers and suppliers may work together to coordinate care for Medicare beneficiaries) will apply to your practice.
