Medicare Advantage Intensive - May 17 & 18, 2018

AGENDA - click here

In New Jersey, enrollment in Medicare Advantage (MA) plans has continued to trend upward in recent years. Currently, 22 percent of Medicare eligible residents are enrolled in a Medicare Advantage plan. Given the limited federal regulatory oversight of MA plans, it is difficult for providers to understand what rules MA plans must follow.

Also, the Medicare Advantage landscape is changing with the implementation of new payment models and increased special needs plans offering. This makes it imperative for providers to determine the most efficient way to partner with Medicare Advantage carriers.

This two-day intensive program will include thought leaders in the Medicare Advantage arena. Participants will have an opportunity to participate in focused presentations on topics including:

  • Oversight and regulations governing MA plans
  • Benefit designs and value-based contracting
  • Provider-sponsored MA plans
  • MA plan compliance challenges
  • MA plan apeal rules

The faculty includes representatives from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, the law firm of King & Spalding, ECG Management Consultants, Avalere Health, Manaat & Health Management Associates.
