EMTALA Update 2020 Session 2 (A 3-Part Webinar Series)

EMTALA Update 2020 Session 2 (A 3-Part Webinar Series)

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.
