About this webinar

This program will focus and provide a summary of the current and anticipated statutory and regulatory
requirements relating to compliance under the Medicare Act, as well as the impact of the recently
filed case in Federal Court pursuant to the Qui Tam provisions of the False Claims Act, upon RREs
and claim programs. These developments bring compliance concerns relating to the three primary
obligations under the Medicare Act with Section 111 Reporting, WCMSA/LMSAs and Conditional
Payment Reimbursement for workers’ compensation, liability, and MedPay/PIP policy claims to the
forefront of the claim handling and settlement process. Attendees will take away best practices to
consider employing within a casualty program to document and increase compliance, improve claim
closure rates, remove confusion, and create a national consistent program approach.
