Prevent Telemedicine Pitfalls: How to Identify and Mitigate Fraud and Abuse and Other Legal Risks

Posted on: July 29th, 2014 by aerven

Recorded Webinar from July 29, 2014.

The recent CMS proposal to expand reimbursement for services provided via telehealth underscores the industry’s ever‐​shifting regulatory landscape. But as these developments continue to promote the use of telehealth, is your telemedicine program subject to increasing regulatory risk? Join us for an examination of the key regulations and practice tips for avoiding risks related to the federal Stark and Anti‐​Kickback Laws, along with information privacy and security, reimbursement, and other critical topics.

Key Takeaways

Attendees to this webinar will:
  • Be aware of financial relationships with telemedicine partners and how they potentially implicate the federal Stark and Anti‐​Kickback laws — telemedicine collaborations serve an important role in increasing access to care but are not immune to the perils of healthcare fraud and abuse
  • Know to whom and under what conditions Medicare and Medicaid will reimburse telemedicine services to submit compliant claims to avoid potential fraud and abuse liability
  • Identify and mitigate the unique risks to the privacy and security of patient information through interactive medicine — who is liable for HIPAA violations and what is at stake?
  • Understand your duties with respect to credentialing physicians who perform telemedicine — what information from the distant site can be relied on and what documentation is required to be in place?

Who Should Attend

  • Hospital and health system executives
  • Hospital and health system department heads
  • Telemedicine program managers and coordinators
  • Hospital and health system compliance and legal officers
