This seminar series will span issues that address health care administrators and human resources professionals. Bond attorneys from our health care practice area with experience in health care management, employee benefits and estate and financial planning will present the pertinent details to help you to address the changing health care climate.

The new federal health care law includes numerous provisions with immediate implications for fraud and abuse enforcement and compliance. This seminar will cover those provisions. We will examine how the PPACA supplements and changes current law, how the federal law affects New York State law, the impact and threat to providers due to the new provisions, and the compliance changes that providers need to make as a result.

Health Care Administrators, Practice Managers, and Chief Operating Officers of health care facilities.
