Liability and Exposure for Health Care Professionals Under the Affordable Care Act

With the Affordable Care Act’s (ACA) implementation underway, many healthcare providers are aligning themselves with Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs). The Centers for Medicaid and Medicare Service’s (CMS) has stated that ACOs primary objective is to control health care costs while improving the quality of care. It is that objective which exposes doctors, hospitals and ACOs to new risk.

Boynton Healthcare can help manage your risk with these five steps:

1. Re-Examine Medical Malpractice Coverage
