Institute on Medicare and Medicaid Payment Issues 2022

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 manuals 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.

In-Person Program Format

How It Works

  • We will offer in-depth breakout sessions where speakers and attendees can interact and collaborate with each other in-person.
  • We consider the health and safety of all those onsite at in-person programs our top priority. AHLA will follow guidance and requirements issued by the CDC as well as by state and local government and are working with the hotel to ensure your health and safety as we transition back to in-person programming. 
  • All attendees, who register for the in-person program, will be required to commit to our Duty of Care agreeing to follow the protocols we establish and monitor their own health for the health and safety of all. 
  • On March 22, to minimize crowding, we are offering extended time for registration. We have adopted a new onsite registration system by providing seamless, touchless check-in, onsite badge printing, and safety supplies to all attendees to use while in attendance.
  • Built-in extended time between sessions for moving from room to room, networking with colleagues, and personal breaktime.  
  • Socially distanced seating arrangements in breakout rooms, regular cleaning in and around meeting spaces, and appropriate signage/floor decals to reinforce spatial distancing and other safety reminders.
  • The program sessions will be recorded. Recordings of the presentations, along with the materials will be available for purchase after the program for those that are unable to attend in person. More information on our ePrograms.

Benefits of the In-Person Program

  • After a year of virtual programming, you will finally be able to step out from behind your computer and network face-to-face with other health law professionals.
  • Interact with colleagues at in-depth breakout sessions.
