Hospitals with emergency departments that accept Medicare and Medicaid reimbursement must follow the federal law and the CMS interpretive guidelines on Emergency Medical Treatment and Labor Act (EMTALA). EMTALA deficiencies are the most problematic standards for hospitals. Recent CMS deficiency report found more than 2,600 EMTALA deficiencies, and over 120 of them were related to on-call physician issues. To address EMTALA deficiencies, EMTALA penalties have more than doubled in 2017.
Join our expert in Part I of the three-part webinar series as she reviews EMTALA regulations and interpretive guidelines and the Office of Inspector General's (OIG) proposed changes, which will affect on-call physicians. The series will cover all 12 sections of the law, in addition to the expanded section for on-call physicians, and it will outline the shared and community care plan processes.
