This program was recorded on June 24, 2019

The healthcare industry is heavily regulated, and violations of the law can have dire consequences, including criminal implications. Ensuring DME providers have the proper foundation from the commencement of their operations is vital from a compliance and business longevity perspective. This course will cover the basic business and legal considerations that new DME providers and their counsel must take into consideration, as well as areas of heightened enforcement. An overview of state and federal regulations and business considerations will be discussed in addition to best practices to provide new DME providers with the knowledge necessary to move forward in this space intelligently.
