Description: 

Overview:

Medicare release of the final CY 2017 OPPS rule is critical for providers to understand so they can be ready to implement all changes by January 1, 2017 while also obtaining a keen sense of where they can expect to see financial impact on their book of business. Many of the expected changes if finalized could have tremendous financial and/or operational impact on providers. The final rule is typically released around November 1st which gives providers less than 60 days to be ready for the new year's changes. Joining for this program will allow providers to be ready

Why should you Attend:

It's better to know what changes CMS has finalized so that providers are ready to implement new coding or billing requirements such as the use of new modifiers, etc. Additionally, providers will have a sense of what payment rate changes/shifts are expected for individual services (by CPT code, such as evaluation and management visits, observation, drugs, etc.) and/or for Comprehensive APCs, which are like mini-outpatient DRGs or episodes. Knowing where the largest changes are can help finance directors, hospital CFOs, coding, billing, reimbursement, and compliance staff be ready for impact on their organizations.

Areas Covered in the Session:

All major financial and/or operational changes finalized by CMS for CY 2017 OPPS
Status indicator changes
Packaging changes
Comprehensive APC (mini-DRG) changes
Payment changes for drug administration, E/M visit codes, observation, composite APCs, drugs, biologicals, radiopharmaceuticals, blood and blood products, as well as other major APC category payment rate changes
Changes related to reporting modifiers and much more!
Observation Notice Act changes if released
Section 603 related technical and operational changes for grandfathered vs. non-grandfathered provider-based off-campus locations
And much more!

Who Will Benefit:

Health Information Management
Revenue Cycle Directors
Finance
Billing Office
Charge Description Master Coordinators
Others in the hospital interested in understanding the changes CMS has finalized for CY 2017.

Description: 

Overview:

In this session Mr. Wolfe will provide an overview of the Stark Law and its 2016 changes. He will also discuss best practices for implementing and auditing physician compensation arrangements to minimize liability exposure and penalties, including conducting compliance audits, instituting policies, and establishing ongoing monitoring and review processes.

Why should you Attend:

Healthcare reform has invigorated the government's focus on healthcare fraud, including enforcement of the Stark Law. Improper design and implementation of physician arrangements can result in penalties, denial of payments, and exclusion from federal health care programs. Thus, ensuring Stark Law compliance will be critical for medical groups, hospitals and health systems looking to manage areas of enterprise risk. Health care organizations should periodically audit their existing arrangements to ensure they are compliant with Stark's technical requirements and key tenets of defensibility (e.g., fair market value, commercial reasonableness, and not taking into account designated health service referrals, etc.) in case their physician compensation arrangements are ever challenged.

This webinar will offer best practices for implementing and auditing physician compensation arrangements to minimize liability exposure and penalties, including conducting compliance audits, instituting policies, and establishing ongoing monitoring and reviews.

Areas Covered in the Session:

Provide a general Stark Law Overview.
Explain the requirements for compliance with key regulatory exceptions.
Summarize the recent changes to the Stark Law for 2016.
Discuss the audit process and how to resolve issues that may arise during the audit process.

Who Will Benefit:

In-House Counsel
Health Care Compliance Officers
Health Care Human Resources
Health Care CFOs
Health Care executives

Speaker Profile :

Joseph Wolfe is an attorney with Hall, Render, Killian, Heath & Lyman, P.C., the largest health care focused law firm in the country. Mr. Wolfe provides advice and counsel to some of the nation's largest health systems, hospitals and medical groups on a variety of health care issues. He regularly counsels clients on a national basis regarding compliance-focused physician compensation and alignment strategies. He is a frequent speaker on issues related to the physician self-referral statute (Stark Law), hospital-physician transactions, physician compensation governance and health care valuation issues. Before attending law school at the University of Wisconsin, he served as a combat engineer in the United States Army.
