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 (CoPs) Interpretive Guidelines on the Emergency Medical
Treatment and Labor Act (EMTALA). Even hospitals without emergency departments must
comply with EMTALA if they have specialized capabilities.
This three-part webinar series will provide clarity on the regulations, interpretive guidelines
and final changes, including all 12 sections of the CoPs manual and an expanded section for
on-call physicians and the shared and community care plan process. Our speaker will review
frequently cited deficiencies, including a recent case against a South Carolina hospital, which
resulted in the largest EMTALA settlement to date of $1.2 million.
Don’t miss this important series to ensure that your hospital’s policies, procedures, and
training are adequate to maintain compliance with EMTALA.
