There's a broad spectrum of compliance areas that affect hospitals, health systems, physicians and clinics -- and new focus areas continue to emerge every year. Take, for example, the new CMS Recovery Audit Contractors (RACs) who are now on the prowl in several states to clean up improperly paid claims -- and return this money to the government. And that's only the beginning of today's current compliance issues.
To make sure your compliance program's written policies and procedures can withstand the pressures of 2008, join expert speaker Duane C. Abbey, PhD, CFP, for this 90 minute audioconference. He'll review both the current compliance hot spots as well as compliance areas that may soon become active. He'll also walk you through a systematic approach to analyze, assess and take action to address coding, billing and reimbursement issues. You'll walk away with a better understanding of how a coding, billing and reimbursement program interfaces to the hospital corporate compliance plan -- and the prowess to survive the auditing process and avoid associated penalties.
Here’s a sampling of the details you’ll learn:
