Product Description

If Your Compliance Plan Is A Dusty Binder Sitting On The Shelf In The Administrator’s Office, It Is Time To Take The Plan Down And “Dust It Off”!

In the last few years, government enforcement activity has increased, especially for home health providers.  As part of the PPACA, Congress added a number of additional anti-fraud efforts and also directed the Secretary of HHS to make compliance part of the COPs. This means that compliance programs will not only be a great way to avoid problems, it will soon be part of the COPs - which means it will be “more mandatory.”

A good compliance program can not only help you to prevent fraud or to identify it early, but is also a factor the government considers in imposing sanctions after fraud occurs.  Unfortunately, many providers have a compliance plan only in the sense they have a binder they put together ten years ago that is sitting on a shelf. A compliance program has to be active and ongoing.  Your compliance officer should be part of an effort to not just identify and correct errors, but to instill a “culture of compliance” throughout your agency.  

It is important to be aware of the basic concepts and current “best practices” in compliance. This will help you to evaluate the current state of your compliance efforts. Join this 60-minute information packed event presented by expert and learn why compliance is so important to home health providers, learn about the seven elements of any compliance plan, important things to consider when appointing a compliance officer, ways to demonstrate the entity is serious about compliance, the importance of training employees, most importantly, you'll learn that compliance is an ongoing effort and a compliance plan is not something that just sits on a shelf and gathers dust.

Register now and learn to draft a compliance plan that detects problems before government does which appropriate steps to correct the problem and try to prevent future reoccurrences.
