  • New CMS Program Integrity Final Rule Is Here—Guideposts for Operationalizing the New Disclosure Requirements - On Demand Recording

    Recorded On: 11/06/2019

    On September 5, 2019, CMS released a final rule with comment period called "Medicare, Medicaid, and Children's Health Insurance Programs; Program Integrity Enhancements to the Provider Enrollment Process."

    Time: 90 minutes
    Session Format: On Demand Recording
    CLE Credit Available:  No

    We do not apply for CLE credit or issue CLE certificates for our past programs and webinar recordings. Please check with your State Bar as to whether self-study credits can be awarded - CLE credit may be obtained by applying directly to the attorney’s state accrediting body, but approval is not guaranteed and is at the discretion of said accrediting body.

    For on-demand webinar recordings, streaming access is available for 12-months from the date of the live webinar.  After 12-months, on-demand webinar recordings are available through the AHLA Health Law Archive.

    On September 5, 2019, CMS released a final rule with comment period called "Medicare, Medicaid, and Children's Health Insurance Programs; Program Integrity Enhancements to the Provider Enrollment Process." Finalizing a proposed rule from 2016, CMS has imposed new enrollment disclosure requirements and created new avenues for denying or revoking enrollments across the range of providers and suppliers that participate in Medicare, Medicaid, or CHIP. Beginning November 4, 2019, providers and suppliers will be required to disclose certain current or past “affiliations” with other providers and suppliers if those affiliated providers and suppliers have been subject to a “disclosable event.” One key to understanding the impact of this final rule is understanding the broad scope of both “affiliation” and “disclosable events.” Hospitals, SNFs, physicians, and other providers and suppliers will need to keep track of a new range of conduct among a new range of relationships. Failure to track and disclose these affiliations will be at one’s peril, as CMS has authority to deny or revoke an enrollment if it determines that an affiliation presents “an undue risk of fraud, waste, or abuse” or if the provider or supplier failed to disclose the affiliation. The goals of this webinar will be to describe key concepts in the final rule and give those representing providers and suppliers guideposts for how to operationalize the new affiliation tracking that CMS has imposed. The webinar will focus on practical examples and takeaways.

    On October 9, CMS and OIG issued two highly anticipated proposed rules to reform the Stark Law and Anti-Kickback Statute (AKS) regulations. The rules are part of the agencies’ broader efforts to remove regulatory barriers to innovation and move toward a more affordable, high quality, value-based health care system, while maintaining important protections for patients.

    Join leading industry experts and representatives from CMS and OIG for an AHLA webinar that will analyze key provisions of the proposed rules such as new, permanent exceptions to the Stark Law for value-based arrangements that would apply broadly to care provided to all patients, as well as the clarifications and guidance on key statutory terms. Speakers will also examine elements of the AKS proposed rule including the three new safe harbors for remuneration exchanged between or among eligible participants; for all innovation models that CMS sponsors; and for donating cybersecurity technology and services.
