Course Description:
It is essential that every hospital, including critical access hospitals, be in compliance with the federal regulations and interpretive guidelines on the Emergency Medical Treatment and Active Labor Act (EMTALA). EMTALA requires hospitals participating in the Medicare program to screen for emergency conditions and provide stabilizing treatment to all persons presenting to a hospital's emergency department, regardless of their ability to pay. As hospitals seek ways to make patient treatment more efficient and the government continues its aggressive oversight of hospitals, issues of EMTALA compliance often arise, resulting in civil penalties and patient lawsuits.

Listen as our panel of experts explain the obligation EMTALA imposes on hospitals participating in the Medicare program, outline the gray areas for hospitals and physicians in EMTALA compliance, and offers best practices to avoid or minimize government penalties and defend patient lawsuits. more
