Secaucus, NJ, July 24, 2019—Hudson Regional Hospital is addressing the need for spinal surgeons and medical professionals to be up-to-date on the complicated regulatory practices associated with treating automobile accident patients by hosting a discussion Tuesday, July 30 with Keith J. Roberts, Member at Brach Eichler LLC. John Fanburg, Managing Member and Healthcare Law Chair, Brach Eichler LLC, will provide an introduction.

Mr. Fanburg is a highly experienced practitioner representing physicians of all disciplines throughout the state of New Jersey concerning healthcare-related regulatory and transactional matters. He will provide an overview of current trends affecting practitioners in the No-Fault arena, especially as it concerns spine surgery and potential upcoming regulatory action by the New Jersey Department of Banking and Insurance.

Mr. Roberts is a member of Brach Eichler’s Healthcare Law and Personal Injury teams, with an extensive background in advising healthcare professionals concerning regulatory issues, practice structures, insurance audits, and compliance issues. His discussion will review topics including:

  • Protocols related to types of locations where spinal surgery can be performed:
  • Proper billing and insurance coding for spinal surgeries to ensure proper payment and reimbursement;
  • How to handle claim denials from insurance companies;
  • How to properly approach arbitration with insurance companies.

“While our number one priority as caregivers is to provide safe, effective treatment for our patients, we still have to understand the complex rules and regulations of the health and auto insurance companies to protect our own businesses,” said Dr. Nizar Kifaieh, MD, MBA, CPE, FACEP, President and CEO of Hudson Regional Hospital. “Even the most seasoned spinal surgeons and medical professionals can benefit from hearing one of the leading healthcare law specialists in New Jersey discuss how to navigate this complicated marketplace.”

“Practice management is a highly complex set of activities including insurability, cost, healthcare regulations, relevant care and how they all intersect,” said Keith J. Roberts who is an expert in No Fault Insurance, as well as reimbursement litigation, where he commonly represents medical providers against insurance carriers in coding and fraud disputes.
