Product Description

Navigate a Medicare NCD that has a lot more than meets the eye.

Medicare’s Clinical Trials Billing National Coverage Determination is not as simple as it looks. All too often individuals make erroneous determinations about what can be billed based on their first reading of this NCD -- which can lead not only to potential fines, but to lost revenue as well. And watch out -- the OIG and the Department of Justice have realized that the NCD is difficult to implement correctly, and they have begun to focus enforcement resources on this issue.

To get a better grip on CMS’ Clinical Trials Billing Policy, join expert speaker Michael C. Roach, Esq., during this 1-hour encore teleconference. He’ll translate the legal jargon into plain English and help you determine what is billable to Medicare and what is not. Finally, he’ll give you tips on implementing processes to ensure correct billing.

Who should attend: Compliance officers, CFOs, and whoever reviews and negotiates clinical trial agreements for hospitals conducting clinical trial research.

In this jam-packed session you’ll learn:

  • A common misunderstanding of clinical trial services: Why "standard of care" doesn’t always mean "billable."
  • What puts hospitals who are not parties to the clinical trial agreement with the trial sponsor at particular risk.
  • Does your hospital know when patients are receiving research services? Use these operational steps to keep your records straight.
  • Key information you need to perform a Medicare coverage analysis.

Your registration includes:

  • Risk-free enrollment! Scheduling conflict? No problem! This session is also available on CD!
  • Expert answers to your tough questions from peers in the field.
  • Complimentary attendee package, including the speaker's complete presentation handouts. Keep this quick reference tool close by for future use!
  • One low price for all the staff you can stuff into a conference room!
