Description

Emergency Medical Treatment and Labor Act (EMTALA) deficiencies are the most problematic standards for hospitals. A recent CMS deficiency report found more than 3,687 EMTALA deficiencies – 173 related to on-call physician issues. To address EMTALA deficiencies, EMTALA penalties have more than doubled.

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 discuss the proposed Office of Inspector General (OIG) changes affecting on-call physicians, changes to Beneficiary Family Centered Care-Quality Improvement Organization (BFCC QIO) complaints, and The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act’s specific provisions related to insurers and EMTALA-covered patients.

CMS and OIG recommend hospitals to provide continuous EMTALA training for their physicians who are on call. Ensure your ED staff and on-call physicians receive their training.
