A fundamental question in any hospital merger is whether there is a change of ownership (CHOW). Medicare and Medicaid have established detailed enrollment procedures depending on the type of transaction. Failure to follow enrollment procedures could impact future cash flow and entitlement to payment. The Medicare enrollment issues can expand to managed care contracts that often tie participation to Medicare enrollment. Managed care contracts also raise various state law issues as well as general contracting issues.
The key to successfully navigating these potential roadblocks is a thorough, detailed due diligence plan that encompasses the potential regulatory issues based on the type of transaction and the providers involved. This webinar will discuss the pitfalls and solutions to many of these key regulatory issues that must be addressed as part of due diligence.
