John W. Kaveney, a partner in the firm’s Healthcare Department, will be a participant in the virtual roundtable discussion “Medical Audits…Are you Ready?” to be presented by Withum's Healthcare Advisory Services Group on Tuesday, June 15, 2021 from 3:00pm – 4:00pm. Mr. Kaveney will join Domenic J. Segalla, Team Leader of the Healthcare Advisory Services Group, for this informal presentation.
Many are billing for services under the Medicaid Program, whether at the federal, state or local level. Laws and regulations can often be complex, and many organizations are under-resourced to handle the details while managing to bill and collect in a timely fashion. But what happens when the regulators come in to audit? Is a compliance program in place? Are quality control checks performed after billings occur to identify errors? What are best practices to put organizations in a strong position to avoid any negative ramifications of a compliance audit? These and other issues will be explored during the one-hour roundtable discussion.
Mr. Kaveney focuses his practice in the area of healthcare law, representing a range of clients that includes for-profit and non-profit hospitals and health systems, academic medical centers, individual physicians and physician groups, ambulatory surgery centers, ancillary service providers, medical billing companies, skilled nursing and rehabilitation facilities, behavioral health centers and pharmacies. His practice in the healthcare field includes providing counsel on Medicaid and Medicare reimbursement matters before the Division of Medical Assistance and Health Services and the Provider Reimbursement Review Board, as well as work on corporate compliance and HIPAA compliance issues, healthcare regulatory matters, civil litigation and professional licensing concerns.
