Program Materials

This CLE webinar will provide counsel to healthcare providers with crucial steps to successfully obtain and maintain their enrollment and billing privileges under the enhanced Medicare and Medicaid enrollment requirements.

Description

The ACA enhanced the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services’ (CMS) enforcement authority by creating new requirements and sanctions for providers and suppliers participating in the Medicare and Medicaid programs and codifying existing regulations. And, since its enactment there has been increased scrutiny of adherence to the requirements, leading to adoption of additional regulations and far more aggressive enforcement.

The risk-based enrollment and revalidation screening procedures raise operational and administrative challenges for providers and increase the risk of deactivation or revocation of Medicare billing privileges or termination from the Medicare and Medicaid programs.

Counsel for healthcare providers must understand how CMS and the states implement the enrollment standards to advise clients on measures to take to obtain billing privileges, accurately revalidate program enrollment, and avoid compliance pitfalls.

Listen as our authoritative panel of healthcare counsel provides practical measures for complying with the new Medicare and Medicaid enrollment requirements to obtain and maintain enrollment and billing privileges.
