The ACO Era Begins: An Overview of Accountable Care Organizations

Including Results from a New Survey on ACOs Conducted by the
Modern Healthcare Custom Research Department

Tuesday, May 10th and Thursday, May 12th

On March 31st, the federal government outlined proposed actions relating to Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs), a key component of the healthcare reform legislation enacted in March 2010. Please join us on May 10th or May 12th for a discussion of the proposed ACO regulations and how healthcare providers will be affected.

During this complimentary briefing we will also review the results of a survey of senior-level healthcare executives on the topic of ACOs. The survey, conducted by Modern Healthcare Custom Research Department exclusively for Waller Lansden, provides valuable insights into how health systems throughout the country plan to integrate ACOs into their operations and the challenges they foresee in these efforts. Attendees will be the first to see the survey results, and they will benefit from the analysis of the results provided by experienced Waller Lansden healthcare attorneys.

In this briefing, we will discuss the following topics:

  • Key Aspects of an ACO Under the CMS and HHS Proposed Rules
  • Critical Issues for Consideration with Respect to ACOs
  • The Stark, Anti-Kickback and Related Regulatory Framework for ACOs
  • Antitrust and Tax-Exemption Issues
  • ACO survey results


  • Reggie Hill
  • Kim Harvey Looney
  • David C. Head
