)-- The Knowledge Group/The Knowledge Congress Live Webcast Series, the leading producer of regulatory focused webcasts, announced today that it has scheduled a live webcast entitled: “Understanding the New System: Final Rule on Fraud Prevention in Medicaid, Medicare and CHIP Live Webcast.” This two-hour event is scheduled on October 3, 2011 from 3:00 PM to 5:00 PM ET.
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) issued a final rule effective March 25, 2011, which enacts a number of program integrity provisions of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA). These provisions aim to reduce fraud, waste and abuse in Medicare, Medicaid, and Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP).
The guidance focuses primarily on the new & technically complicated enrollment processes for Healthcare providers and suppliers and CMS’s expanded authority to impose payment suspensions.
Healthcare providers and suppliers will need to work closely with their compliance and corporate counsel/officers to ensure that an effective process is in place.
The Knowledge Group is assembling a panel of key thought leaders and experts to give insights of the most important issues. This 2-hour webcast will discuss the following key provisions:
- New Medicare provider and supplier screening procedures
- Screening methods performed under the Medicare program
- Who are affected?
- Application fees on Medicare, Medicaid and CHIP
- CMS amendment to 42 C.F.R. §§ 405.370 through 405.372
- Withholding payments
- Future of payment suspensions and compliance plans
- Other Provisions
