Product Description

Know what it takes to incorporate foreign "medical tourists" into your practice.

Popular media has been touting medical tourism as the newest twist in healthcare delivery. In fact, companies that promote travel for the purpose of medical care already exist in both the United States and abroad. But medical tourism is a fast changing market. Once an essentially unregulated industry appealing mainly to patients focused on very elite and expensive healthcare options, medical tourism has, in more recent years, seen an increasing interest in mainstream medicine services for foreign patients in the U.S. and overseas -- and insurance coverage is taking its place on the stage too.

To get up to speed on this dynamic topic, join healthcare attorney Wayne J. Miller, Esq., in this informative 90-minute teleconference. He’ll explore both the background of the medical tourism industry and ways in which individual practices may participate. Get the lowdown on the latest compliance and regulatory concerns -- particularly involving arrangements with industry representatives, payer and governmental requirements, and billing and liability issues. With the right information and planning, medical tourism could make significant contribution to your practice.

Here's what you will learn:

  • Know your sources: Where to find patients from foreign countries.
  • What resources patients are seeking in overseas care -- and what you should be able to provide them up front.
  • 4 Regulatory cautions to consider when dealing with tourism brokers and representatives.
  • Nail your planning: Continuity of care and other obligations for foreign tourists.
  • You’re not just listening to Uncle Sam: laws of foreign countries may apply to  tourist care.
  • Coverage and billing issues for tourist patients -- it’s not just cash pay anymore.
  • Understand your practice’s liability risks -- and how to protect yourself.
  • Have additional questions? You have the floor with Wayne during an interactive Q&A!
