Program Description

This webinar will provide an overview of healthcare fraud and abuse issues to help healthcare executives, consultants, and other professionals navigate an increasingly onerous regulatory climate. The presenters will discuss important regulatory, compliance, and enforcement activity during 2012-2013, noteworthy settlements and lessons learned over the past year, and continuing developments with the Stark Law, the Anti-Kickback Statute, the False Claims Act, and reporting of overpayments.

To illustrate the importance of compliance on these issues, we will apply these to case scenarios and real-life examples. Finally, the presentation will also outline best practices in compliance as well as addressing potential regulatory violations, including through the CMS and OIG self-disclosure protocols.
