Description Biography

Few healthcare issues are as controversial as the one that is raging now in hospitals, health systems and clinics. In fact, few topics are as likely to create frustration than the one that potentially forces you to handle the admission status of two otherwise identical 65-year-old patients differently based on whether they have traditional Medicare or Medicare Advantage. Frustration over this topic triggers the need for this special educational webcast led by nationally recognized healthcare attorney David Glaser.

During this essential and timely webcast, David Glaser will answer questions that are foremost on the minds of healthcare professionals:

  • Do you need to follow Medicare rules for Medicare Advantage plans?
  • Do Medicare Advantage plans need to follow Medicare rules like the two-midnight rule?
  • Can you treat privately insured patients differently than Medicare patients?

Knowing when you are obligated to follow instructions from a private insurance company is difficult. This session will walk through some rules you must follow when you can push back, and strategies for making this relationship less frustrating.
