Attorneys to Help Navigate NP and PA Regulatory Issues at WHA Event

Register today for WHA APC Conference on September 13

August 07, 2018

Attorneys from Hall Render, Quarles & Brady, and WHA will present a comprehensive review of key regulations and payment policies impacting organizations that employ advanced practice clinicians and providers during the morning sessions at the upcoming one-day WHA program, “WHA Advanced Practice Clinician Conference: A Comprehensive Look at APC Practice Challenges and Opportunities for Integrated Care Delivery in Wisconsin” in Wisconsin Dells on September 13.

The presentations will help answer questions on advanced practice provider and clinician licensure, scope of practice, compliance, billing and reimbursement and other regulatory issues regularly received by WHA.

Sarah Coyne, partner with Quarles & Brady, and Matthew Stanford, WHA general counsel, will team up on the opening session, during which they’ll share an overview of the current regulatory landscape that affects NP, PA and other advanced practice provider and clinician practice and will discuss WHA’s team-based care regulatory reform initiative.

Lori Wink, attorney for Hall, Render, Killian, Heath & Lyman, will then present a session focusing on understanding and navigating billing compliance complexities and requirements to help organizations receive payment for services provided by advanced practice providers and clinicians and to reduce risk from potential audits and allegations of fraud and abuse.

In addition to legal and regulatory topics, WHA’s one-day conference will also include presentations and panels focusing on education and training of advanced practice providers and clinicians, and recruitment, retention and utilization trends of advanced practice providers and clinicians in integrated care organizations.
