From surprise billing legislation to vertical integration and the private equity takeover of provider practices, the healthcare industry is undergoing significant transformations with consequences for payors, providers, and patients alike.

ACI’s 11th Annual Advanced Forum on Managed Care Disputes and Litigation returns to Chicago this year to help you make sense of these developments, and their profound impact for managed care.

Hear from and connect with an outstanding line-up of speakers with a wide range of experience in everything from regulatory developments to class action trends, fraud and antitrust enforcement, payor-provider disputes, risk adjustment, and PBM litigation.

  • The Impact of Surprise Billing Legislation on Providers and MCOs
  • The Legal Implications of Vertical Integration in the Healthcare Industry
  • Pre-emption Challenges in Healthcare Litigation
  • The Impact of Private Equity Ownership of Providers on Managed Care
