If you provide services to geriatric populations, your organization faces a legal and regulatory maze.
In order to understand the needs and concerns of patients and their families, and to provide appropriate services and referrals, you are expected to have a thorough understanding of common and complex issues related to powers of attorney, advance directives, guardianship, Pennsylvania and Federal legislative changes for Medicare and Medicaid, Medicaid eligibility requirements, the application process, appeals, estate recovery – and more.
Mr. Hetherington will provide current information that is crucial to understanding the legal and financial issues which impact the everyday aspects of providing health care services. You will leave this live webcast with more confidence in care planning and case management of your geriatric patients.
