Build or Join an ACO—Don’t Let The Opportunity Pass You By!

Recorded Thursday, January 23, 2014, at 1:00 p.m. (Eastern)

A year ago, the Affordable Care Act offered doctors, hospitals, and other health-care providers—including long-term-care facilities—the opportunity to coordinate care provided to Medicare patients through Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs). Timing can be tricky—urgent for post-acute care providers—and appropriate contracts are crucial.

This educational offering is approved for 1.50 credit hours by the National Association of Long Term Care Administrator Boards (NAB). Upon webcast approval and enrollee’s successful completion of the test, Irving Levin Associates, Inc. will issue a NAB certificate of completion for students to issue to their state licensure boards.
