Government scrutiny of home health and hospice providers has been rising rapidly over the past few years. This includes not just fraud investigations and whistleblower actions, but audits and recoupments. In this environment, it is more important than ever to prevent non-compliance and/or to catch non-compliant activity and fix it before the government does. Doing so can not only help you avoid civil penalties, but recoupments and other costs.
Attendees will learn how a compliance program can help them to prevent and correct non-compliance in this session by Robert W. Markette, Jr. CHC. He will review the most common risk areas for providers, discuss methods for preventing non-compliance, identifying non-compliance and steps to take when non-compliant activity is identified.
Who should attend: Compliance officers, administrators, executive directors, claims personnel, clinical supervisors and management
