About the Institute

The Institute on Medicare and Medicaid Payment Issues is the most comprehensive program available on legal and regulatory issues related to reimbursement. Knowing the Medicare and Medicaid laws, regulations, and guidance is not enough to advise clients properly; it is imperative to understand how these various authorities are being implemented.

Participation by representatives from government agencies such as OIG, CMS, OGC, and DOJ distinguishes the Institute and attendees benefit from hearing their insights on regulatory and enforcement efforts. The Institute serves as a forum for bringing together knowledgeable reimbursement counsel and specialists from the public and private sectors to learn from one another.

COVID-19 On-Site Health and Safety Update

By attending any of AHLA’s in-person programs, you agree to abide by and engage in certain health-and-safety-beneficial conduct while attending the program. All attendees are expected to comply with all applicable requirements imposed by federal, state, or local health authorities for the locality in which the in-person program is taking place, and in addition to our Code of Conduct, are expected to adhere to and abide by the safety precautions AHLA has implemented to protect against the spread of COVID-19 such as: 

  • Proof of vaccination (two injections of the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna vaccines or one shot of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine) required for all attendees (Attendees will receive information on vaccine verification that is done using the CLEAR app.) 
  • Social distancing as space allows based on attendance 
  • Personal hygiene and hand sanitization  
  • Adherence to pathway signage  
  • Self-monitoring and self-reporting  

Based on guidance from the CDC, AHLA is not currently requiring attendees to wear masks unless there is a local mask mandate in place. This policy is subject to change if federal guidance changes. We encourage those attendees who are at increased risk for illness or live with or spend time with someone at higher risk to wear a mask.
