CODEMAP® WEBINAR SERIES
This spring, CodeMap will present 3 new Webinars that will guide your laboratory through challenging times. Clinical laboratories face decreasing reimbursement due to PAMA and pressures from private payers. In addition, the federal government continues to focus its attention on clinical laboratories and their interactions with referring providers and patients. Our Spring Webinar series will include the following presentations:
Developing Legal, Regulatory, and Enforcement Challenges for Clinical Laboratories: Laboratories must understand and prepare for developing challenges presented by the LAB Act, PAMA, EKRA, and scrutinized billing arrangements. Discussions will include how CMS will collect private payer data from hospital and reference labs, EKRA's effect on how labs pay commissions to Sales Professionals, and certain billing arrangements, which have caught the attention of federal enforcement agencies.
Interacting with Patients: Compliance Issues: For the most part, clinical laboratories maintain indirect treatment relationships with patients. However, interactions with patients still occur concerning billing, claims submissions, and the disclosure of protected health information. All laboratories must be careful about these interactions to ensure compliance with anti-kickback provisions, beneficiary inducement prohibitions, and HIPAA. This CodeMap® Webinar will discuss financial assistance programs, patient requests for test results, patient complaints, breaches of protected information, and financial arrangements with patients.
2020 Regulatory Update: Hospital Outreach Programs: Each year, we devote an entire CodeMap® Webinar to the regulatory issues that confront all hospital laboratories that maintain outreach programs. As is customary, we will focus on issues consistently identified by our subscribers as complex, confusing, and/or worrisome. This year we will examine the following: standing orders, reflex testing, employee and customer screening, the provision of supplies and equipment, chargemaster management, and date of service provisions for laboratories, including the 14 Day Rule.
The price to participate in each individual CodeMap® Webinar is an affordable $225.00.
