Health care partner Deborah Kantar Gardner and counsel Peter Holman (both of Boston) and corporate practice associate Cara Dermody (Boston) authored a Nov. 22 article in Law360 examining future MACRA considerations for hospitals and health systems acquiring or affiliating with a physician practice.

The authors explain that under the Medicare and Chip Access and Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA), a portion of physician payments are tied to value-based health care goals, such as reduced costs and improved quality, aligning them more closely with the objectives of hospitals and health systems.
