Product Description

Master the Intricacies Surrounding the ‘Incident-to’ Concept

The phrase 'incident-to' is used in two very different ways (by physicians, and by hospitals) in the Social Security Act (SSA). And that causes confusion about how incident-to must be interpreted. Proper compliance with all the rules and regulations that relate to both types of incident-to uses is a major challenge for physicians and hospitals alike. Plus, the recently changed physician supervision requirements add to the complexity.

Learn how to comply with both types of incident-to uses in this power-packed session by healthcare compliance expert Duane C. Abbey. He will compare and contrast the two different interpretations (i.e., by physicians and practitioners, and by hospitals), and show you how to remain compliant in both cases. Abbey will explain the interplay between these two concepts, and also include special situations—such as for CAHs (Critical Access Hospitals) and RHCs (Rural Health Clinics).

After attending this session, you will be confident in your ability to identify and comply with the incident-to scenarios applicable to your practice or hospital. You will know the compliance concerns surrounding the incident-to concept, and a lot more as shown in the session highlights below.
