Achieving compliance in the medical practice is much more than performing an annual coding compliance review. There are many other facets involved in the compliance for the practice. Non-compliance in these areas can result in fines, penalties, sometimes similar to those imposed for coding non-compliance. They are all equally important to the practice and should be documented and reviewed periodically.
In addition to coding the practice should address compliance concerns, such as Accounts Receivable/Billing, Order Authentication, Medical Necessity, Signature Requirements/Documentation, HIPAA and OSHA. They all represent the areas of compliance concerns with financial penalties if not addressed; therefore, all are equally important.
In this medical compliance conference, Marsha S. Diamond, CPC, CPC-H, CCS will shed insights on some of the top concern areas like—how to achieve compliance in Accounts Receivable/Billing, Order Authentication, Medical Necessity, Signature Requirements/Documentation, HIPAA and OSHA as well as the penalties associated with failure to comply.
