ACI’s acclaimed conference is coming to Atlanta in the fall!
Based on overwhelming feedback and demand, ACI is bringing its annual acclaimed Managed Care conference to Atlanta, GA. This is your opportunity to attend our updated Atlanta event and benefit from the extensive learning and networking opportunities that more than 120 leaders in the Managed Care field take advantage of every spring in Philadelphia. With the Affordable Care Act implementation a reality, MCOS are now facing new litigation risks resulting from the multiple provisions in the ACA. In addition, MCOs continue to represent “deep pockets” for potential plaintiffs and classes. The pursuit and defense of these suits requires meticulous planning, and often involve high cost. ACI is pleased to present its 4thAdvanced Forum on Managed Care Disputes and Litigation, taking place October 22-23, 2013 in Atlanta, which features trial attorneys and in-house counsel who have been active in some of the year’s biggest cases. No other forum provides the opportunity to share defense strategies and tactics to enhance your litigation toolkit. MCOs still struggle to fight off rampant litigation centered on: antitrust violations, ERISA, false claim act violations, complex class actions, non-par litigation, Medicare Advantage challenges and much more. The litigation in the managed care space has become more complicated, which necessitates an opportunity for you to have in-depth strategic discussions with your industry peers. In addition, this event features extensive networking opportunities with high-level representatives from many of the leading MCOs as well as the top litigators in the field. Our prior delegates say it best: •“This was a terrific conference. The topics were today’s issues. The presenters were great at presentation and very knowledgeable.” • “Good content, delivery.

[O]utstanding “think tank” opportunity with my extended colleagues in the field.” All speakers were deeply knowledgeable, “ • “First rate all the way; best panels and audience of any conference of this type; managed flawlessly.” • “Very informative and concise – an excellent use of my time.” • “Had a wonderful time!

Managed care litigation often hinges on ERISA issues and it is crucially important for you to understand the complexities and nuances of the statute. ERISA 101 will help you identify the critical issues while delving deeper into the fundamentals of ERISA. Learn how to identify key provisions that may raise red flags during litigation. Failure to have a clear understanding of the statute can lead to costly litigation and long-term financial problems. In this era of heightened scrutiny of the health care industry, the art of conducting an effective internal investigation is now a critical competency for MCOs. This in-depth working session on Structuring Internal Investigationswill provide you with a step-by step guide for every phase of an internal investigation.
