Thursday, October 5

Noon - 1 p.m. (MT)
11 a.m. - Noon (PT)
HIPAA breaches, fines, and penalties are becoming more frequent and more costly. MIPS compliance, within MACRA, is becoming a new healthcare compliance headache for physician practices because the physicians now have a new set of regulations to meet or face losing 4% of their Medicare reimbursement rates in 2019, with 5% in 2020, 7% in 2021, and 9% in 2022. Risk managers may feel they have a great understanding of how HIPAA and maybe even how MIPS works and how to comply with those laws. This webinar will review some of the basic compliance requirements every covered entity would have to comply with to avoid the fines and penalties associated with these laws. The webinar will review HIPAA, any current changes, and current fines and penalties. The webinar will discuss the basic requirements for MIPS compliance. It will also cover how these laws can affect a covered entity if they fail to mitigate the risks involved with not being in compliance, and what to expect going forward. Risk managers who attend this webinar will have a better understanding about what is necessary to help their covered entities comply with these healthcare compliance laws.
- Discuss HIPAA/MIPS compliance issues and identify how best to address those issues to keep from getting penalized for noncompliance
- Examine the risks of not being fully in compliance with these laws and what that can mean to a covered entity
- Identify steps to take that can help mitigate the risk of not being in compliance with these laws

Sandberg Phoenix & von Gontard
Kyle Haubrich is Counsel at Sandberg Phoenix and brings with him more than five years of legal experience. He focuses his practice on the rapidly evolving areas of health care law, specifically on HIPAA and MACRA regulations – both for individuals and businesses – and on the new Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA) with special emphasis on the two compensation paths of Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) and Advanced Alternative Payment Models (APMs) applied to Medicare reimbursements, which represents perhaps the most significant change in Medicare compensation in decades. Kyle not only offers deep insights and understanding of these regulations to his clients, he also has a complete understanding of the business implications and needs of his clients, which enables him to tailor his services precisely to each client’s individual needs and business objectives.
