ADLS #5: Contractual and Governance Issues among Providers in Bundled Payments
Bundled payments necessarily entail allocation of a single source of dollars, or a reconciled budget, to disparate providers. In the mid-90s, disputes over how to allocate monies contributed to the relative failure of a number of PHOs. In this webinar, Faculty will outline contractual structures and provisions to ensure that payments are consistent with the expectations of the participants. Faculty will not address Stark, anti-kickback or gain-sharing issues.
