ARE YOU PREPARED TO TACKLE THE EVER-EXPANDING LEGAL OBLIGATIONS BEING IMPOSED ON MCOS?

Dear Colleague:

A serious legal liability crisis is threatening every managed care organization in the United States, putting the industry in a state of flux. The combined effect of detrimental court rulings, state legislative initiatives and an inability to obtain insurance is tearing at the very heart of the system.

What we've seen so far, however, is only the tip of the iceberg. There are far greater changes on the horizon - and while the stalwart MCOs are still standing, they're on very shaky legal ground. As corporate counsel or legal adviser to MCOs, you must have an in-depth grasp of these substantial changes in order to truly manage and limit the risks to MCOs.

This timely and important American Conference Institute event was developed to provide you with an intensive and thorough review and update of the expanding legal obligations imposed upon MCOs today. It brings together a distinguished group of corporate counsel, experts in health care law and veteran health care litigators to share their insights on:
  • The future of managed health care in America
  • The new medical malpractice liabilities for HMOs - and how to avoid them
  • What physicians must do to protect themselves from new and expanding liabilities
  • How MCOs can successfully comply with expanding fiduciary duties under ERISA
  • The most common causes of action - and how you can defend against them
  • How to restructure provider contracts in light of legislative and regulatory reform measures
  • Practical HIPAA compliance strategies: lessons learned so far
  • And much more!
Don't miss this opportunity to ask the questions you want answered from the people on the front lines, and to network with your peers and colleagues from across the country who share similar concerns. We look forward to your participation in this national event.
