    "Legal Guidelines for Waiver or Reduction..." by: Jeffrey Baird, Esq of Brown & Fortunato, PC

    DME suppliers have an obligation to take reasonable steps to collect co-payments from Medicare beneficiaries and from patients covered by commercial insurance. Of course, it is easy to collect from a Medicare beneficiary when the beneficiary has supplemental insurance. This is not quite so easy when the beneficiary does not have supplemental insurance. From the viewpoint of the OIG, it is important for the beneficiary to pay something. This causes the beneficiary to have “equity” in the process thereby making the beneficiary a wiser consumer of health care products and services. When a DME supplier routinely waives co-payments......and particularly when the supplier advertises that it waives co-payments, then the OIG considers this to be a kickback, inducement, and a false claim. According to the OIG, the supplier can only waive a co-payment when the supplier has made a patient-specific decision to waive.....and that decision is based on the financial condition of the beneficiary. Interestingly, contracts with commercial insurers and state statutes impose substantially the same requirements on DME suppliers that bill commercial insurers. This program will discuss the requirements imposed upon DME suppliers to attempt to collect co-payments from Medicare beneficiaries and commercial patients, and the steps that the supplier should take before waiving a co-payment.  Info on the speaker may be found here.

    "Flirting with Disaster: Emergency Preparedness" by: Vianna Zimbel, Vianna Zimbel Consulting

    Does your business have a plan to deal with a disaster? Most small businesses do not. Man-made disasters affect 10% of small businesses, whereas natural disasters have impacted more than 30% of all small businesses in the USA. Without the resources of large corporations and limited government aid, small businesses are the most vulnerable to the fickle demands of Mother Nature. Unfortunately, the lack of a plan greatly increases the chance that a company will struggle to resume normal operation for an extended period.  The obligation to provide continuity for our patients, the downtime and potential losses caused by these disruptions become very costly. This program will provide an overview of disaster planning and checklists to help your company plan for and survive an emergency?  Info on the speaker may be found here.

    "Compliance Essentials for DME" by: George Breen, Esq, Epstein  Becker Green

    Since the OIG “suggested” in 1999 that DME providers devise and operate under a formal corporate compliance program, major changes have taken place in our industry! Now more than ever, your corporate compliance plan serves as your insurance policy that what you earn, you will retain. Developing your firm's internal compliance culture takes a keen understanding of what must be included in the program, ensures documented staff training, and, provides policies and procedures that empower each employee, as well as your compliance officer, who oversees the program. Be prepared for inevitable audits and over-payment situations. Be protected in the coming years against offsets and fines, and make sure your compliance officer and staff know exactly what needs to bedone in any instance. This program will help your business to thrive, not simply survive.  Info on the speaker may be found here.

    1.8 CEUs will be provided through CCB (Compliance Certification Board).  Note, not all courses provide CEUs for ATPs; check with us for specifics.

    "False Claims..." by: Asela Cuervo, Esq, The Law Offices of Asela

    The Government’s number one enforcement tool for fighting fraud is the False Claims Act (FCA), a civil war era law designed to prevent and punish financial fraud by government contractors. The FCA relies on whistleblowers to bring fraudulent claims to the government’s attention and reward’s them handsomely if they are successful. In health care and other business sectors with a large influx of government funds, the Department of Justice (DOJ) intends to increase FCA enforcement of FCA violations in 2015. This seminar will address the basic features of the law and the incentives that make it such a powerful recovery tool for the Feds. Learn what courts have concluded are false claims by reviewing the facts in recent FCA cases. Because many FCA actions begin with everyday business situations, the seminar will address compliance practices to help you avoid the “tipping points” that can turn simple mistakes into the potential of liability for false claims.  Info on the speaker may be found here.
