EMTALA Update 2022

Webinar Series - Session 2

Any hospital that has an emergency department and accepts Medicare and Medicaid patients must follow the federal law and the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Conditions of Participation Interpretive Guidelines on the Emergency Medical Treatment and Labor Act (EMTALA). Hospitals without emergency departments must comply with EMTALA if they have specialized capabilities. EMTALA can also impact obstetrical patients and behavioral health patients.
 
EMTALA is a hot topic with CMS and OIG and should be on the radar screen for every hospital. There have been a recent increased number of deficiencies and increased CMS and OIG activity. As such, it is important for hospitals to be prepared should a CMS surveyor walked into your hospital today to investigate an EMTALA complaint.
 
Hospitals are required to report a potential EMTALA violation and can be cited for failure to do so. CMS issued a recent deficiency memo showing that over 5,350 hospitals received deficiencies for failure to comply with the federal EMTALA law. Common deficiencies of emergency departments, including EMTALA citations, will be discussed during this program.
 
This 3-part webinar will include the regulations and interpretive guidelines. It will include all 12 sections and an expanded section for on-call physicians and the shared and community care plan process.
