The following program content was provided by the speaker.

Overview

This program will provide a comprehensive update on significant legal and regulatory changes, including the following.

On May 3, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services published draft guidance regarding space sharing between co-located hospitals and hospitals co-located with other health care entities. This new guidance answers a number of longstanding provider questions regarding co-location and co-mingling of services between co-located providers. At the same time, the guidance leaves open a number of ongoing issues for hospital provider-based facilities, building construction, rural facility compliance and other operational hurdles.

Join this session, and learn CMS’ new guidance and interpretation of space sharing restrictions, operational hurdles for provider operations, and opportunities for ongoing provider input as CMS policy develops.


Objectives

At the conclusion of this session, participants will be able to:

  • understand CMS’ new interpretation of space sharing restrictions and prohibitions for hospitals and co-located providers
  • evaluate existing and proposed co-location arrangements for compliance with the new guidance
  • review areas where CMS guidance is still unclear
  • review opportunities for provider engagement with CMS through the comment process
