POSTED OCTOBER 5, 2021
About this webinar
This program will focus and provide a summary of the current and anticipated statutory and regulatory requirements relating to compliance under the Medicare Act, as well as the impact of the recently filed case in Federal Court pursuant to the Qui Tam provisions of the False Claims Act, upon RREs and claim programs. These developments bring compliance concerns relating to the three primary obligations under the Medicare Act with Section 111 Reporting, WCMSA/LMSAs and Conditional Payment Reimbursement for workers’ compensation, liability, and MedPay/PIP policy claims to the forefront of the claim handling and settlement process. Attendees will take away best practices to consider employing within a casualty program to document and increase compliance, improve claim closure rates, remove confusion, and create a national consistent program approach.
