We are excited to bring you 24 live virtual sessions, 5 on-demand primer sessions, and some face to face interaction with your colleagues during our morning coffee and conversations. Our 24 sessions will focus on the latest legal and compliance challenges in fraud and abuse; hitting on regulatory (Stark, Anti-Kickback, False Claims Act), investigations, telehealth, transactions, compliance, and, of course, the impact of COVID-19.

For those new to this area or just want to brush up on the basics, 5 on-demand sessions will be available to attendees starting September 24, one week prior to the program, to watch when you have time.  On September 24 from 11:00 am-12:30 pm, we will also hold one of our core sessions—The Billing and Coding Bootcamp. This pre-conference session will give attendees the foundation they need in billing and coding and get their questions answered. 

One of the great benefits of a virtual program is registrants will have access to all of these sessions, whether it be live or on-demand later. 

The full agenda details are available. All events/sessions are listed in Eastern Daylight Time. Darker blue shaded sessions are designated as compliance focused.
