In the last few years, Medicare fraud enforcement has notably increased. At the same time, Congress and CMS are putting more pressure on states to recover money through Medicaid fraud enforcement. So if your home health agency isn't taking precautionary steps, it should be -- and developing a compliance program is a good place to start. Not only will it help you prevent fraud or identify it early, but the government considers it as a factor in imposing sanctions after fraud occurs. Compliance plans head off costly whistleblower lawsuits too. But an effective compliance plan is not just something that you print, put on a binder and forget about. If you printed out the OIG’s home health compliance guidance, but took no further action, you may not have a compliance program.
So take an ounce of prevention -- and hour out of your busy day -- to hear nationally-known healthcare attorney Robert W. Markette dish on what your home health compliance program needs. You'll walk away with a greater understanding of the biggest compliance issues that plague home care, and the key elements to a compliance plan. You'll also learn strategies to identify problems before they happen and the skills to correct any problems that exist.
Here's a sampling of what you’ll learn:
