Program Materials

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

Description

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) further 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.

The new risk-based enrollment and revalidation screening procedures, effective last year, continue to 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 have implemented the more rigorous enrollment standards over the past year in order 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.
