Compliance guidelines and regulations for physician practices are numerous and sometimes confusing. Most small physician practices cannot afford to employ a full-time Compliance Officer – and the person handling compliance duties is often overwhelmed with other responsibilities. If the penalty is around $10,000 for each claim/service then can you afford things to “slip through the cracks” even if they are understood?
Join us for this Session – “Compliance Mistakes Made By Physician Practices” where expert Kim Huey from drawing on the experiences of health care attorneys and compliance professionals, will review the most common compliance mistakes made by small physician practices and how to avoid making those mistakes yourself.
Who should attend? Physicians and physician practice managers, billing supervisors, compliance managers.
