The topic of this webinar is “Medical Necessity: Clinical Medical Necessity vs Billing Medical Necessity”, and the speaker is William Mack Copeland, president of Executive & Managerial Development Group.
About the webinar:
Medical necessity is a very major enforcement target for health care executives, physicians and other health care providers who participate in and receive remuneration from Medicare, Medicaid, and other federal health care programs such as Tricare. Strict compliance is a must in all these programs. Knowledge of the nature of medical necessity and its compliance requirements is the basis for preventing fraud and thus protecting their profession and their organization. This webinar offers participants this knowledge.

Any health care provider has to be aware of the government’s capability of invoking medical necessity as a basis to pursue a federal False Claims Act action to prevent overutilization of government healthcare services. The speaker will explain the situations in which a federal False Claims Act action can be brought up. While describing the history of such cases, he will examine how these are changing, and will prognosticate the future of fraud detection and enforcement.
