On March 15, Eric Fader presented a live webinar for The American Society of Neurophysiological Monitoring (ASNM) entitled “Navigating Legal Issues in Neuromonitoring.” The webinar was recorded and will be available on demand from the ASNM website within a few days. It is free for ASNM members and costs $59 for non-members, and is approved for one hour of ASNM-CEUs and AMA PRA Category 1 Credit.

The material Eric covered included joint ventures; federal and state laws and regulations affecting the intraoperative neuromonitoring (IONM) field, including anti-kickback, self-referral, HIPAA, and anti-markup rules; contractual matters among IONM providers, employees and contractors, and hospital customers; state licensure and delegation laws; and billing and collection issues, including state “surprise bill” laws. The prepared portion of the webinar ran for one hour and five minutes and was followed by 30 minutes of questions and answers on a broad range of topics.
