MOCEP was recently approached by Livanta, a medical review contract company for CMS, and they are looking for EMTALA reviewers. CMS and state agencies are continually developing EMTALA cases against EDs in our region and they are specifically looking for board certified, practicing EM physicians with knowledge on how an ED works in order to review these cases. There is a reimbursement for the reviews, but the focus is on helping in the investigation of the EMTALA cases, and giving EM trained physician opinions to help in how the cases will proceed.
If you are interested in learning more, the letter sent to MOCEP can be found here. If you have additional questions, or are interested in being a reviewer, please contact Sharon Jochman at email@example.com.
