The Medicare & Private Insurance Changes and Updates Conference
Annually there are State and Federal law changes that a healthcare provider needs to be aware of. New policies, laws and regulations have an impact on healthcare practices. Each individual State establishes a scope of practice for healthcare practices. To practice according to local laws, practice staff must know and stay on top of legal parameters in their state. The course deals with legal responsibilities, including but not limited to laws and rules governing the healthcare practices. Further the course has a focus on ethical practices management, effective communication with patients and time management.

National Provider Compliance Corporation (NPCC) shall ensure that the course meets the required criteria. Our Course pertains to the legal requirement governing the licensee in the areas of auxiliary employment and delegation of responsibilities; the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA); The Federal False Claims Act; Physician Self-Referral; Red Flag Program; Anti-kickback Law and actual delivery of care.

The Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA) set in motion new provider payment rules that went into effect January 1, 2017 with significant implications for clinicians. MACRA directed the Secretary of Health and Human Services to implement reforms to tie physician payment updates to quality, value, and participation in alternative payment/delivery models. The law fundamentally changed how Medicare pays clinicians who participate in the program and established two tracks for Medicare reimbursement: the Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) and Advanced Alternative Payment Models (APMs).

While the first year for MACRA implementation is 2019, the performance tracking period began January 1, 2017. Thus, performance in 2017 will determine positive or negative payment adjustments in 2019. Accordingly, providers must begin preparing now for MACRA implementation to ease the transition and to position them for success.

Finally, that the course content pertains to the legal and ethical aspects of the insurance industry, to include management of third party payer issues, billing practices, patient and provider appeals of payment disputes and patient management of billing matters.

How to maximize the impact of life science reps and resources at your practice
If you manage a medical office, you know it is more critical than ever to stay in regular contact with the life science reps who can keep you up-to-date on current medical practice and technology. But dealing with reps can be a major workflow disruption that can cost your practice time and money. Unwanted walk-ins, disruptive phone calls, last second cancellations, unexpected no-shows, and the constant hassle of trying to find the reps you need when you need them can cost you and your staff hours of wasted time and work.Fortunately, there’s now a practical, proven way to manage all your life science reps and resources and seamlessly connect your practice to the precise life science experts you need, when you need them.

Ethics & Excellence
Everyone strives toward a standard of excellence, but why do so many fail to reach it? How can you help develop an internal compass within your employees that always points toward integrity, honesty and responsibility? How can you make sense of senseless situations in our modern working environment amidst flattened hierarchies and heightened transparencies?

Ethics & Excellence delivers a critical and strategic thinking template that can be replicated to match the unique structure of your business or organization. It provides foundational concepts to help develop your staff's ability to: Keep cool under pressure, use a 3-step analysis rubric, think long-term about immediate responses, differentiate between correlation and causation, develop an awareness of their own biases, make urgent decisions confidently, and take the jerk out of kneejerk

Can I Keep This? Deciding When You Must Refund
Health care organizations refund millions of dollars every year mistakenly believing that the
refunds are required to be compliant. Whether you have billed under the wrong
professional's name, have an unsigned chart, are missing a written order, had a short hospital
stay, or are missing E&M documentation, there are often solid legal arguments that you do
not need to refund money because of the error. While there are certainly times a refund is
required or appropriate, when you have provided a service to a patient, the law doesn't
require a refund for every administrative error.

We will talk about situations where organizations refunded tens of thousands,
hundreds of thousands, and in some cases more than a million dollars that they were legally
entitled to keep. For example, one health care system had refunded over $1 million on short
stay hospitalizations, but after hearing one of our webinars, realized that they had been
legally entitled to keep the money. We helped another clinic that had voluntarily refunded
hundreds of thousands of dollars appeal to recover that unnecessary voluntary refund. This
presentation will explain how you can determine whether a refund is necessary and what options
you have to recover money you voluntarily refunded.

Sampling for Audits & Disclosure
In an extrapolation audit, CMS is very clear that you cannot challenge the basic premise for conducting the extrapolation; that is, that there is a ‘high or sustained level of error’. As such, what you are left with is challenging the actual calculations involved in the overpayment estimates or the sampling methodology. And of these two, challenging the sample has the highest rate of success. Why is that? Because even CMS says that, in order to extrapolate, you must first begin with a valid random sample of some universe. And in the famous Chaves case, the judge says that extrapolation can be used as long as the sample is representative of some universe. So, randomness and representativeness are two sides of the same coin and in this session, Frank Cohen, statistician and compliance expert will flip that coin several times. Attendees will get a basic understanding of basic definitions, the different types of sampling methods and how to identify potential problems with any audit. And for those that conduct internal coding reviews, Mr. Cohen will touch on methods you can employ to maximize efficiency and minimize risk.

Attendees will receive a complete tool box, including the RAT-STATS program, associated documentation, sample audit data set and all other pertinent collateral material necessary to create your own samples or defend against improper sampling.

The Expansion of Kickback Liability
In 2018, violations of the Anti-Kickback Statute involving Medicare, Medicaid and other Federal health care programs became subject to a maximum penalty $100,000 and 10 years imprisonment. Although significant, these increases pale in comparison to the potential penalties that may be imposed for engaging in kickbacks schemes which violate EKRA. In this session, we will discus the current status of these statutes and how law enforcement is prosecuting violations of these laws around the country. We will also discuss steps that you can take to reduce your risk of violation.

How to Manage the Challenges of MIPS Reporting
Robert Hopton, Chief Executive Officer, and Sarah Reiter, Vice President Strategic Partnerships, both of Health eFilings, will provide insight into the MIPS program, what it means, and what you can do to maximize Medicare reimbursements. Health eFilings, a CEHRT (Certified EHR Technology), is a national leader in MIPS compliance and data management. With its ONC certified software, organizations effectively track and analyze data for population health management initiatives and easily comply with complex CMS programs such as MIPS.

MIPS requires providers to transition from a volume to value-based care model or else face significant financial penalties and even reputational harm. The stakes have been raised every year and it is even more complex than it has been in the past, further increasing the stress, burden and financial risk to providers. Given there are many commonly misunderstood aspects of MIPS and many nuances of how to earn the most points, it can be challenging to know exactly what to do to earn points and protect your reimbursements. It is critical to understand what reporting methods will optimize your MIPS score. And, since the focus is always on the bottom line, it's imperative to know what tangible steps can be taken to increase the financial payouts from the program without requiring any additional resources or time.
