More and more patients are choosing providers based on the availability of telemedicine services. But BEWARE. Medicare, private payers, and state laws and regulations regarding scope of licensure can lead to violations that result in serious punishments or penalties, fines and practice prohibitions.
However, you and your patients CAN benefit from telemedicine services without violation concerns by understanding exactly what services can be offered by whom within your practice. This is where healthcare attorney, Bradley S. Davidsen, JD, can help. During his 90-minute online telemedicine workshop, you’ll gain the necessary skills to maximize your telemedicine profit without crossing violation boundaries.
Here are just a few of the actionable, step-by-step telemedicine compliance tactics you’ll receive by taking advantage of this 90-minute online training:
- Effectively delegate to non-physician practitioners to increase utilization and profitability
- Avoid prescribing violations and criminal charges for non-compliance with the Ryan Haight law
- Master task delegation by standing order or supervision agreements to avoid scope of practice violations
- Determine the specific level of physician supervision required for NPs and PAs to comply
- Don’t allow state specific guidelines to lead to a fatal violation
- Avoid surpassing treatment limitations across the miles
- Identify allowable “administrative tasks” that can be delegated to maximize physician time
- Ensure compliant patient relationship before prescribing via telehealth
- Utilize a Telemedicine Checklist to ensure you’re compliant
- And so much more…
Who should watch? This training is specifically for medical or behavioral health practices that currently do offer telemedicine services, or are thinking about adding them. Although the presentation contains legal concepts, it will be offered in a plain-English format for medical professionals and their staff.
Providers offering telemedicine services continues to significantly expand each year. This means that Medicare, private payers, and legal authorities are taking note, and are more likely to audit practices for noncompliance. You don’t have to be concerned. By taking advantage of this online workshop, you can reduce your risk and maximize your telemedicine opportunities.
