Health care providers often have a difficult time trying to determine when co-payments and deductibles may be properly waived. Similarly, the extension of “professional courtesy” continues to be a problem in many practices. In this session, we will cover the risks you face when waiving co-payments and / or deductibles involving government and private payor plans.

1. Participants will gain an understanding of the current health care fraud enforcement environment.
2. Participants will learn when waivers of co-payments and deductibles are permissible.
3. Participants will learn why the extension of a “professional courtesy” discount may be problematic.
