Did you know that the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act requires the issuance of at least 41 new sets of regulations? Government agencies have already issued several regulations and other guidance to implement the health care reform legislation. Notably, new rules have been issued addressing: provider enrollment and documentation related to orders of certain services and supplies, high risk pools for individuals with pre-existing conditions and federal subsidies for health plans for early retirees. In addition, the Secretary has already named a Director of CMS’s new Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation, which soon will be considering funding proposals submitted by providers and others who keep themselves apprised of the opportunities presented by the health reform legislation.
This sweeping legislation is already generating a flood of information, including critical new requirements for providers and others in the health care industry, some of which may be relevant to you and some of which may not be. To help our clients respond to this challenging environment, PPSV is considering the establishment of “interest groups” to provide focused, strategic, and concise updates to our clients in specific sectors of the health care industry. The goal is to provide information of specific and tailored interest to your segment in a cost efficient manner, without deluging you with general information that will be available elsewhere.
At this stage, we are attempting to gauge our clients’ interest in this approach. If you are interested in participating with other similarly situated clients to receive these focused updates, we would appreciate your responding to this survey by checking your area(s) of interest. Please be assured that replying to this e-mail does not obligate you in any way, and that your response will remain confidential. Pricing of participation in any of these interest groups will depend upon the responses we receive. We appreciate your response.
