  • This webinar on the legal principles of 'Medical Necessity' will cover the compliance background and provide practical advice on how healthcare providers can understand and apply ‘medical necessity’ principles.

    Why Should You Attend:
    'Medical Necessity' principles are a fundamental component of health care delivery and payment for both government and private health plans. Moreover, both individual and organizational providers face undesirable consequences if they do not learn and follow these principles. The consequences range from mere ‘warning notices’ to possible criminal charges.
    The objective of this 90-minute webinar is to provide a solid frame of reference for those who must deal with ‘medical necessity’ issues as part of their core job responsibilities.
