Hospitals, especially those in rural settings, are being surveyed for possible violations of the Emergency Medical Treatment and Labor Act (EMTALA) at an ever-increasing rate. After nearly 30 years of living with the anti-patient dumping requirements of EMTALA, why now? EMTALA compliance may not be the priority it once was as a result of economic challenges and a rapidly changing healthcare regulatory environment. Still, if EMTALA is not handled correctly, corrective actions, fines and the loss of Medicare numbers can be a near-death knell to a provider.
Join Crowley Fleck and Husch Blackwell healthcare attorneys as they unpack EMTALA and offer suggestions on how to best allocate limited resources to achieve cost-effective EMTALA compliance.
