"2013 Medicare Marketing Guidelines Present New Compliance Challenges"

Hinshaw Health Care Practice Group partner Michael A. Dowell wrote an article published by BNA’s Medicare Report in its July 13, 2012 issue. The article discusses the final 2013 Medicare Marketing Guidelines, recently released by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).
