Why should you attend:
Healthcare providers and entities or organizations involved in any type of healthcare transaction, especially those who bill or are involved with services payable by a CMS program, play an important role in not only protecting the integrity of the CMS programs by ensuring they are cognizant and comply with the various laws; but also by implementing necessary compliance initiatives. Providers, entities and organizations who bill Medicare, Medicaid or other government payor programs must development and maintain appropriate compliance programs, with a special emphasis on auditing and monitoring, appropriate training, receiving and responding to complaints and conducting investigations. If your compliance program does not incorporate necessary control processes, you are at risk for potential audits that may lead to civil, monetary and criminal penalties. Understanding potential risks that target your practice or organization, responding and mitigating deficiencies could be vital in sustaining your success and viability, as well as having an impact on any negative findings by an external audit or investigative agency. Lastly, healthcare delivery is undergoing dramatic changes that may affect healthcare provider reimbursement. Quality of care and reduced costs will affect provider reimbursement for services. You need to understand how these changes will affect you. Attending these progressive sessions will assist you with your efforts to building a solid and proactive compliance program.
