IRS Guidance On Tax-Exempt Bonds And Accountable Care Organizations

The IRS has released guidance explaining how local governments and 501(c)(3) organizations can form Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) and participate with private, for-profit entities in the Medicare Shared Savings Program without jeopardizing the tax-exempt status of bonds issued to finance its health care facilities.

The guidance relates both to the organizational structure of the ACO and permissible contract arrangements between the ACO and a local governmental or 501(c)(3) organization that owns bond-financed assets. To learn more, view the text of the IRS Notice, or contact your GilmoreBell attorney.
