Healthcare laws are constantly changing; sometimes it seems from one minute to the next.
“Keeping up with the pace may seem overwhelming and exhausting for healthcare providers, but they can also provide opportunity,” said Emi Gilbert, In-House Counsel for Celtic Healthcare.
“The setting for home healthcare and hospice allows for there to be some bad actors out there, but healthcare regulations help get these bad actors out of the business,” Gilbert said.
One of the greatest challenges facing healthcare providers and consumers is the Affordable Care Act. Gilbert said the act will bring “broad” changes to healthcare.
“There are many moving parts to follow, and the number of regulations affecting us is amazing. One of the biggest challenges is following these changes and monitoring effective dates and/or delays,” she said.
