The following program content was provided by the speaker.


Every hospital that has an emergency department and accepts Medicare or Medicaid reimbursement must follow the federal law and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services interpretive guidelines on Emergency Medical Treatment and Labor Act. This includes critical access hospitals.

During PART II of the series, our speaker will discuss the recent changes by the Office of Inspector General that impact on-call physicians, as well as recent Office of Inspector General investigations. The presentation will focus on EMTALA issues, including payment issues, patient financial questions, required policies and procedures, and hospital recommendations. EMTALA special responsibilities and EMTALA outpatients, inpatients and observation also will be discussed.


At the conclusion of this session, participants will be able to:

  • discuss the hospital's requirement to maintain a list of the specific names of physicians who are on call to evaluate emergency department patients
  • identify CMS requirements on what must be on the EMTALA sign
