Considerations and Lessons Learned for Medicare First Tier, Downstream and Related Entities (FDRs)

Please join us as Doris Stein and Kristina Park, Managing Directors from Alvarez and Marsal’s Healthcare Industry Group, discuss their experiences with Medicare FDRs in understanding risks, considerations, and lessons learned to maintain Medicare compliance with CMS and Medicare Advantage Organizations (MAOs).  As CMS continues to enhance its oversight of MAO contracts, this has put pressure on FDRs to maintain compliance. Creating transparency and efficiency is essential for FDRs to maintain CMS compliance and MAO satisfaction.

Topic areas discussed will include: quality assurance, roles and responsibilities with delegation, and CMS current and future trends and mandates related to models of care and value-based contracting.
