Has it become impossible for physicians to own their practices?

No… but as you have surely discovered in recent years, changes in healthcare regulations and economics have made it increasingly difficult for practices like yours to remain independent.

And the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is adding to your burden. The law is changing the way you are paid. It’s affecting your relationship with payers. And it’s exposing you to the same employer mandates that other business owners must accept.

What can you do?

Start by educating yourself: Join us for an informative webinar, entitled Affordable Care Act: Opportunities and Pitfalls for Physician-Owned Firms, hosted by Bank of America Merrill Lynch, featuring legal professionals Elise Klein and Joelle Sharman who advise clients throughout the nation on healthcare issues.

Here is just some of what you will learn:

  • What should you know before deciding whether to participate in an Accountable Care Organization?
  • What are the legal implications of allowing your practice to be acquired by a hospital or other entity?
  • How will the ACA affect your contract negotiations with payers?
  • Does the law expose your practice to additional audits by CMS or other government agencies?
  • What requirements does the ACA make of you as an employer?

Healthcare is changing. And the Affordable Care Act is driving most of that change—for better or worse. But you don’t have to be an Obamacare victim. This webinar will tell you what you need to know to keep running your practice your way.
