Civil Monetary Penalties and Exclusion Webinar
Time: 10:00 AM PDT | 01:00 PM EDT
Duration: 60 Minutes
Instructor: William Mack Copeland
As a health care executive, physician or other health care provider, you should be very concerned about the potential for liability under the fraud and abuse laws. Under recently enacted health care laws, enforcement activity and health care fraud task forces have been greatly enhanced. This raises the specter of being charged with false and fraudulent activity and being sanctioned and or being excluded from these programs under the Civil Monetary Penalties Law. Attend this webinar to learn how to protect yourself and your organization.
The Civil Monetary Penalties Law authorizes the imposition of substantial civil money penalties against an entity and/or individual who engages in false and fraudulent activities. In addition, the Office of the Inspector General ("OIG") can and does exclude providers from federal healthcare programs such as Medicare, Medicaid, and TriCare for program related crimes and other questionable activities.
Why Should you Attend:
Health care executives, physicians and other health care providers, who participate in and receive remuneration from Medicare, Medicaid, and other federal health care programs such as TriCare, will immensely benefit from this webinar. In this webinar we will review the Civil Monetary Penalties Law, obligations under EMTALA, civil monetary penalties and assessments based on the type of violations.
The webinar will also speak in detail about the violations under the False Claims Act, violations under the Anti-Kickback statute and Stark, amendments under Obamacare, mandatory and permissive exclusions, and a brief review of the Anti-Kickback Statute, Stark, the Healthcare Benefit Program False Statements Statute, and the Healthcare Fraud Statute.
Objectives of the Presentation:
The objectives are to provide the attendee with an understanding of the enforcement efforts under the CMP and exclusion laws and to provide guidance regarding how to protect the attendee´s organization from penalties and exclusion.
