# 011565Brave New Healthcare World: Overcoming Obstacles to Payment for Medical Service and Evaluating Opportunities and Hazards in Healthcare Integration
You have already attended programs on ACOs and the Healthcare Reform Act. You know the future of healthcare is uncertain, and it is clear that financial challenges faced by physicians in their practices will not disappear. Physicians and lawyers need to know what steps can be taken today to ensure that physicians get paid for medical services.
As health plans and healthcare delivery systems buy, or affiliate with, physician groups, what legal and operational issues must be considered when evaluating integration proposals? How is the value of a physician practice calculated in these transactions? What are the implications for PCPs and specialists who do not participate in healthcare integration? Is opting out or concierge care a realistic solution? The speakers will explore these questions and others relating to the rapidly consolidating healthcare delivery systems in California.
This program will provide essential information for lawyers and physicians alike as they face these complex challenges in their practices. Join a distinguished panel of speakers including Rocky Delgadillo, formerly the Los Angeles City Attorney and currently the CEO of LACMA, and healthcare lawyers involved in addressing these operational and strategic issues.
