SUMMARY

Federal and state regulatory agencies continue to emphasize that it is the responsibility of healthcare providers to disclose overpayments as part of overall compliance process and programs. A lot of uncertainty exists about how to comply and the related risks. In this webinar, we will discuss those risks and help you understand when the clock starts ticking and when reporting should be considered.

Those attending the webinar will learn the following:

  • Understand the regulations for the government’s 60-day refund rule implications
  • Identify risks to your organization
  • Clarify when the 60-day clock starts ticking
  • Learn what other organizations have implemented
