Client Alert: Proposed Accountable Care Organization Regulation Published

As with all proposed rulemaking, the Regulation is published in the Federal Register on April 7, 2011, and will be subject to a public notice and comment period prior to issuance of the final rule by CMS. Comments must be submitted on or before 5 p.m. EST on June 6, 2011.
