Summary:

When conducting clinical trials it is important to understand and be able to identify serious adverse events (SAE). These are events that are serious, likely related to the study drug, device, treatment or procedure, and increase risks to participants or others.

Serious adverse events are defined by the FDA as "Any adverse experience that places the patient, in the view of the initial reporter, at immediate risk of death from the adverse experience as it occurred, i.e., it does not include an adverse drug experience that, had it occurred in a more severe form, might have caused death." Although this definition seems clear, there are words within the definition itself that have to be understood in order to ensure compliance. Who is the initial reporter? What is an adverse experience? Is an adverse experience different or the same as an adverse drug experience? How do you know if a more severe form as occurred? Is death the SAE or is the cause of death the SAE?

This webinar will help sort out all these issues and get you to a better understanding of what needs to be reported to who.

What You Dont Know Can Hurt You Understanding Medicare and Medicaid Overpayments
12/11/2014 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM
online event Fremont, California United States

Summary:

The Affordable Care Act requires that Medicare and Medicaid "overpayments" be reported and returned by the later of 60 days after the overpayment was "identified" or the date any corresponding cost report is due (if applicable). This standard is intended to encourage providers and suppliers to exercise reasonable diligence to determine whether an overpayment exists. Failure to identify and return overpayments could result in liabilities. There are several sources of liability.

The Fraud Enforcement and Recovery Act of 2009 ("FERA") amended the False Claims Act ("FCA") to hold providers liable for overpayments. In addition, providers face civil monetary penalties and exclusion from the Medicare and Medicaid programs. Penalties can be up to $10,000 for each item or service, plus an assessment of up to three times the amount claimed for each such item or service. Also providers may be excluded from participation in federal health care programs, including Medicare and Medicaid.
