Complying with the Law of Unintended Consequences: How to Minimize the Risks of Liability and Litigation Before Signing MA Plan Shared Savings Agreements

    View Author November 2015

    This article, written by principal Heather L. Stutz, was published in the American Health Lawyers Association’s Health Care Liability and Litigation Fall Newsletter. It explains that through unintended consequences, existing and longstanding Medicare Advantage (MA) rules may actually stifle the innovation and collaboration new laws, like the Affordable Care Act, are meant to encourage. Outdated MA laws may compromise plans’ and providers’ ability to maximize the mutual value of value-based reimbursement, thereby reducing both parties’ incentives to enter into the arrangements altogether.
