Devising comprehensive defense strategies for the MCO Industry

With a constantly changing political spectrum and considerable uncertainty affecting both MCOs and providers, we have developed this year’s agenda to address the latest developments impacting litigation in the managed care space. Join us and engage in lively discussions with peers from both sides of the aisle at this unparalleled event.

Returning to Chicago by popular demand, this year’s fully revamped ACI’s Managed Care forum will provide you with perspectives from both plans and providers. Hear from top in-house lawyers and their outside counsel as they share best practices on approaching managed care disputes in the hope of reaching common ground.
