Part 1: How to Identify and Reduce Your Legal and Compliance Risk





When: August 29, 2017 at 10:00 AM – 11:00 AM PDT

Where: Online

Presenter:  Walter H. Boone, Esq., Balch & Bingham LLP


Alcohol and drug treatment centers save lives.  But legal and compliance risk threatens your ability to perform your calling. Ignoring that risk can stunt your growth, put you out of business, or worse, land you in jail. To reduce your legal and compliance risk, you must first know what that risk is. Treatment centers today face legal and compliance risk from many different areas. Assessing and reducing that risk requires a multi-disciplinary approach and expertise in all of the areas where you face risk. Balch & Bingham LLP is a full service law firm uniquely situated to advise treatment centers in all of the areas where they face risk.


In this series of webinars, Balch & Bingham LLP will present speakers from its different practice groups in the major topic areas of legal and compliance risk affecting treatment centers including:


  • Payment risk
  • Statutory and regulatory risk
  • Labor & employment risk
  • Business risk


In Part I of this series, Balch & Bingham LLP partner, Walter Boone, will provide basic information about how to increase your ability to get paid, and reduce the likelihood of payment delay, audits, or worse, claims by insurers for recoupment.  This webinar will begin with a general overview of the rules for how to get paid and where you find those rules.  You will learn where to go to find out:


  • How long you have to file a claim
  • What happens after you file a claim
  • What happens if insurers don’t pay when they should
  • How long insurers have to file claims for recoupment


Next, the webinar will cover two “hot button” issues in payment risk: patient financial responsibility and urinalysis.  In each section, you will learn the risks of mishandling these issues, as well as practical steps you can take to confront and reduce that risk.


Walter H. Boone is a trial lawyer with more than twenty five years of experience in litigation, and leads Balch & Bingham's multi-disciplinary team focused on the alcohol and drug treatment industry.
