Healthcare is one of the most highly regulated industries in the country and providers of all types will eventually be called to action, whether it be responding to an investigation, conducting a compliance review, or proceeding with a self-disclosure. Bass, Berry & Sims has designed the Healthcare How-To Instructional Webinar Series to provide simple step-by-step instructions and best practices for responding accurately and efficiently while avoiding bad tactics, questionable strategies, and unnecessary risk which can create problems and less than ideal outcomes.
The voluntary self-referral disclosure protocol (SRDP) administered by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) provides a means through which providers and other parties may self-disclose violations of the federal physician self-referral prohibition commonly known as the Stark Law. Under the SRDP, CMS has the ability to compromise overpayments and resolve overpayments based on Stark Law violations for less than the full amount of the overpayment. Determining whether to submit a CMS self-disclosure requires careful consideration, and navigating the process efficiently and effectively requires a seasoned hand.
Topics addressed in the webinar include:
- Determining whether self-disclosure to CMS is appropriate.
- Best practices in preparing an SRDP submission.
- What to expect throughout the self-disclosure process.
- Discussion of proposed updates to SRDP submission process.
Who Should Attend?
- In-house legal counsel.
- Compliance officers and analysts.
- Healthcare executives, principals and other senior leadership.
The webinar has been approved for 1.5 hours of General Tennessee CLE credit. Certificate of completion and other necessary application forms will be provided for use in other jurisdictions.
