This webinar also discusses the latest healthcare regulatory and legislative issues moving through Congress, Health and Human Services (HHS), and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). This webinar also focuses on several key issues such as:

  • Where we are with the Affordable Care Act (ACA) as we prepare for the 2018 plan year.
  • What ACA legislative and regulatory changes to expect; where we are regarding potential repeal-and-replace legislation.
  • Update on CMS Medicare payment regulations for FY2018 for providers, including inpatient/outpatient hospitals, LTCHs, IRFs, SNFs, inpatient psychiatric, home health, hospice, physicians, ASCs, and dialysis.
  • Other CMS Regulatory relief efforts, including modifications and delays to CMS Demonstration programs.
  • Medicaid payment reforms and waiver efforts in the states.
  • CHIP re-authorization, along with potential Medicare extender provisions that expire at the end of FY2017.
  • Update on drug pricing efforts, including potential modifications to Medicare Part B drug payments.
