It has just been announced that interested parties who were unable to participate in person (registration closed almost immediately) may now participate via webcast in the October 5, 2010, public workshop hosted by the FTC, CMS and OIG to discuss various legal issues related to accountable care organizations (ACOs), including antitrust, physician self-referral, anti-kickback and civil monetary penalty laws.
The afternoon session will also be available via teleconference at +1 800 837 1935, conference ID number 10359376. Anyone wishing to comment during the afternoon listening session must dial into the teleconference, because it will not be possible to register a comment via the webcast.
