Product Description

Protect Your Emergency Department From The EMTALA Police.

Tired of being in a tug-of-war between your local payers and federal government mandates? On the one hand, you have to comply with EMTALA and examine all patients who come to your emergency department for treatment. On the other hand, your local payers don't want to pay for those visits that don't pass their "true emergency" test. The good news: You don't have to let your EMTALA compliance hurt your bottom line.

Join our expert speaker Caral Edelberg for this information-packed 1-hour audio session who will review  current EMTALA regulations and their impact on patient treatment, coding and billing. You will get references for current regulations, and tips on how EMTALA medical necessity can be addressed through coding and billing.

Take a look at what's covered:

  • Overview of EMTALA regulations.
  • Walking through the patient's visit to the ED and how EMTALA effects patient information, triage, treatment, coding and billing.
  • Exit interviews of the patient and what to document/what to avoid.
  • Working with payers when medical screening occurs and payment is reduced or denied.
  • Tips for documenting medical screening as "medically necessary".
