Emergency Medical Treatment and Labor Act (EMTALA) deficiencies are the most problematic standards for hospitals. A 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.
This presentation will cover EMTALA regulations concerning on-call physicians to help hospitals comply with the federal law and guarantee uninterrupted reimbursements. Our expert will also discuss The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act’s specific provisions related to insurers and EMTALA-covered patients.
CMS and the Office of Inspector General (OIG) suggest that hospitals provide continuous EMTALA training for their physicians who are on call. Is your hospital and doctor training up-to-date?
