We need the below information to serve you better

Course Description:

Section 6401 of the Affordable Care Act provides that a “provider of medical or other items or services or supplier within a particular industry sector or category” shall establish a compliance program as a condition of enrollment in Medicare, Medicaid, or the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP). And even before the Affordable Care Act was passed, most healthcare organizations implemented compliance programs to help prevent fraud, waste and abuse of federal health care programs. Needless to say, if you provide services to Medicare or Medicaid patients and you either don’t have a compliance program or you need to strengthen your healthcare compliance program, this seminar is for you.

We will perform an in-depth review and application of the 7 elements of an effective compliance program as outlined in the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines as well as explained the U.S. Health and Human Services Office of Inspector General.

The current enforcement environment against hospitals, doctors and other provider types demonstrates financial penalties, fines, settlements and even jail time are on the rise. A compliance program is one way to prevent non-compliance and can also be to your organization’s benefit if something does go wrong and you are investigated by enforcement agencies.

On June 14, 2018 the Acting Associate Attorney General Jesse Panuccio stated, “As we deter fraud by holding individuals accountable, we also want to be sure that we continue to reward companies that invest in strong compliance measures. The challenge of corporate compliance is especially acute in large and diverse organizations. I empathize: every day at DOJ we face the challenges of an organization with 115,000 employees. Things go wrong in every organization. When something does go wrong, however, the greatest consideration should be given to companies that do not just adopt compliance programs on paper, but incorporate them into the corporate culture.”

Attending this seminar will help you learn what you need to learn in order to incorporate compliance into your organization’s culture.
