Are you a healthcare professional responsible for managing and reporting warranty credits on explanted medical devices? If so, this free webinar is for you!

CMS and the OIG have increased their scrutiny of how hospitals manage and report warranty credits, making it even more challenging for healthcare professionals.

  • The standards for managing and reporting warranty credits on explanted medical devices
  • What the OIG will expect when they audit your hospital’s warranty credit management process
  • The role of vendor reps in the process, including what they can and can’t do
