Description Biography

Due to the COVID-19 public health emergency (PHE), exceptions to Medicare and Medicaid rules, regulations and waivers are being published at record rates on both the federal and state levels. There are so many exceptions to the normal rules that exceptions dictate the rules, and providers are having difficult times keeping up with all the changes. But these exceptions will be "low hanging fruit" for future auditors to demand repayments. The time to start preparing your defense is now.

During this exclusive RACmonitor webcast, healthcare attorney Knicole Emanuel will explain what will likely be targeted by auditors in response to the PHE and how to start preparing for post-pandemic audits. She'll show providers how to be proactive for future audits and not get sideswiped by explaining specific leniencies that have taken place since COVID-19 on the federal level that may not mesh with emergency exceptions issued by states. You will learn how to meet multiple, varied criteria, depending on the jurisdiction in which you render services. Knicole will also explain where to learn about the many, many exceptions that have come from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), and how to compliantly apply them to your practice in order to stay ahead of what auditors might target.
