The COVID-19 Pandemic: Fraud and Abuse Compliance Strategies Six Months In (On-Demand Webinar)

Date: 10/27/2020

Overview: The COVID-19 Public Health Emergency was declared on March 13, now over six months ago. Since then, federal, state and local governments have issued numerous guidelines, directives and waivers and have provided significant funding to health care providers to combat the pandemic. Although these actions have helped the pandemic response, most of the actions are only temporary and many of the fixes will need to be adjusted, extended, or sunset in the near future. Health care leaders will need to be vigilant as they navigate this changing regulatory environment. This webinar will discuss our move toward the "new normal" and steps that health care leaders can take to avoid future fraud and abuse and compliance headaches. Panelists will discuss compliance strategies, the current state of the fraud and abuse laws, the mechanics and potential sunset of key actions (including the Stark blanket waivers), evolving telehealth requirements, CARES Act relief funding, COVID-19 related billing issues and other hot button topics.
