About Webinar Planet
Webinar Planet is an online training platform that provides most affordable and updated information, knowledge, updates, regulations to professionals across industries.
Every hospital that has an emergency department and accepts Medicare and Medicaid patients must follow the federal law and the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Conditions of Participation Interpretive Guidelines on the Emergency Medical Treatment and Labor Act (EMTALA).
Hospitals without emergency departments but have specialized capabilities must comply with EMTALA. EMTALA can impact obstetrical patients and behavioral health patients. CMS made changes in to include the Born-Alive Infant Protection Act with an updated the survey memo on the issue.
This webinar will discuss a recent case against a hospital that was the largest EMTALA settlement of 1.2 million dollars. It is anticipated that healthcare will see larger EMTALA fines and more activity because of the higher fines and the OIG final changes. These changes are not in the CMS CoPs and will be discussed.
This 3-hour webinar will include the regulations and interpretive guidelines. It will include all 12 sections of the EMTALA manual – Appendix V – and an expanded section for on-call physicians and the shared and community care plan process.
This webinar will include discussion of a 6th Circuit Court case that has created an enormous expansion of hospital and practitioner liability under federal law. The case, Moses v. Providence Hospital and Medical Centers, Inc., No. 07-2111 (6th Cir. April 2009), overruled the CMS regulation that EMTALA obligations end when the hospital admits the patient in good faith. Those states in the 6th Circuit (Ohio, Kentucky, Tennessee, and Michigan) must now follow this case as precedent. The case illustrates the importance of understanding the role that case law has on the outcome of EMTALA litigation. Patients can complain to CMS and request an investigation, or they have the option of going and directly filing a lawsuit.
