New Assurance University Webinar to Discuss Nationwide Increase in Medicare and Medicaid Recovery Audits
Schaumburg, IL (April 6, 2012) - Assurance University is hosting a new webinar detailing the Recovery Audit Contractor (RAC) Program, which seized over $4 billion in 2011 from overpayments made by Medicare and Medicaid to health care providers. These federal investigations are on the rise and could have damaging effects on health care facilities. Learn more about your risk and a unique insurance policy that pays for legal and pre-approved audit expenses, as well as fines and penalty reimbursements.
Join us on Wednesday, April 18, from 10:30-11:15 a.m. CST for our in-depth webinar titled “Prevent Damaging Effects from the Medicare and Medicaid Recovery Audit Program."
Presenter Genevieve Alexander (Senior Underwriter, NAS Insurance Services) will explain the scope and purpose of RAC, Zone Program Integrity Contractors and various audits in relation to the changing regulatory climate. Genevieve will also speak on ways in which government fraud investigations may impact your company’s long-term health care decisions, and how to effectively respond to allegations of overpayments. Lastly, the webinar will review strategies, such as Medefense coverage, to minimize your business risk.
