Course DescriptionIn recent years - and especially with the passage of the Affordable Care Act - there has been a significant evolution in reimbursement issues for healthcare providers. Understanding legal compliance and risk is critical for healthcare providers to avoid civil and criminal liability. This program, presented by healthcare attorney Harry Nelson, will instruct healthcare attorneys how to spot compliance issues with their physician network and surgery center clients. Mr. Nelson will give focus to out-of-network billing, one of the the fastest growing issues in compliance today. He will also cover ERISA plans, the unique nature of reimbursement disputes, the future of billing and compliance, and strategies to ensure compliance. This program is a must for any attorneys with healthcare organization clients.
