This two-part (Dec. 5 and Dec. 12) webinar will cover the regulations and interpretive guidelines regarding EMTALA. The sessions will cover all 12 sections, tag numbers, and an additional section for on-call physicians and the shared and community care plan process. The series will include a case that has created an enormous expansion of hospital and practitioner liability under federal law. The case illustrates the importance of understanding the role that case law has in the outcome of EMTALA litigation. These programs will also discuss a recent case against a hospital, the largest EMTALA settlement of 1.2 million dollars. It is anticipated that health care will see larger EMTALA fines and more activity because of the higher fines and the OIG final changes. These changes are not in the CMS CoPs and will be reviewed in this webinar.
