Access to Care – Public Health Management and the Law

Monday, July 10, 2023 | 12:30-2:00pm | Online
A number of laws have expanded access to health care in the United States over the past years.  Beginning with the landmark legislation in the 1960’s that created the Medicare and Medicaid programs, and, more recently, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, the law has played a massive role in broadening access to care.  A significant portion of gross patient service revenue of private hospital systems comes from reimbursement by Medicare, the largest public healthcare program (in terms of funding, expenditures, and beneficiaries) in the United States.  In order for most hospitals to survive financially in today’s competitive healthcare environment, they need to participate in the Medicare program. This workshop will cover the legal framework and healthcare benefit structure under the Medicare and Medicaid programs, and discuss the Medicare Conditions of Participation and how they operate, as a matter of law, to achieve broader public health goals.
