Program Description: Compliance with Medicare’s billing requirements is critical to the long-term success of an organization engaged in clinical research.  Improper billing, double-billing, or other noncompliance exposes an organization to the risks of civil monetary penalties and other punitive measures.  A Medicare coverage analysis (“MCA”) is an important component of an organization’s research billing compliance process.  

This program will provide a big picture overview of a MCA and will cover:
  • When to conduct a MCA
  • How to conduct a MCA• What is a qualified clinical trial
  • Which trial-related expenses of qualified clinical trials are covered by Medicare (e.g., routine costs)
  • Coverage of investigational devices
Participants will receive practical tools for conducting a MCA, including a checklist to determine whether a clinical trial is a qualified clinical trial eligible for Medicare reimbursement.

Upon completion of this Webinar, attendees should be able to:
  • Understand the why and when of a Medicare coverage analysis
  • Understand the general rules for Medicare coverage in the clinical trial context
  • Identify when an item or service is covered by Medicare
  • Conduct a Medicare coverage analysis
