Call to Authors: Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) eSource Special Edition

With the recent publication of the proposed regulations and commentary on Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs), the ABA eSource Editiorial Board in conjunction with the Section's ACO Task Force has decided to publish a series of Special Editions within the coming weeks focused on ACOs.  If you are interested in writing an article on a topic related to ACOs, please contact Simeon Carson, Associate Director, directly at simeon.carson@americanbar.org.

The ACO Task Force, chaired by Matthew Jenkins, Partner, Hunton & Williams LLP, was formed to address the myriad issues that surround the development of accountable care organizations, both in response to the provisions of PPACA and the interest of commercial payors in finding new ways to bend the cost curve. The Task Force, has plans for several related projects in the coming months.

Membership in the the ACO Task Force is free for Health Law Section members. To join, please click here or contact Simeon Carson, Associate Director, at simeon.carson@americanbar.org.
