EMTALA and Anti-Dumping Laws
BMD regularly advises clients with compliance of the Emergency Medical Treatment and Active Labor Act (anti-dumping laws). We help developed compliance policies and procedures and provide proactive education to our clients in this area. In addition, we coordinate responses to EMTALA investigations and other enforcement activities by federal and state agencies.
Case Study: A large health system was investigated by state and federal officials for alleged EMTALA violations that involved multiple clinical sites. BMD coordinated an internal investigation of the alleged violations and assisted in the development of remedial actions and preparation of the client’s Corrective Action Plan. BMD also trained clinical staff in compliance with newly adopted policies and procedures. The federal and state agencies accepted the client’s Corrective Action Plan and withdrew threatened penalties
