Product Description

Hospice safe harbors mean smooth sailing for your compliance

Hospice marketing and facility relationships can sound like great ideas that'll land you big profits – but if you don't watch out, they could land your organization in big trouble instead. The Anti-Kickback statute, Civil Monetary Penalty Statute, Stark and the False Claims Act are filled with no-nos for your business ventures, so understanding exactly what you can – and can't do – to make money is absolutely critical for staying compliant. Join expert speaker and healthcare attorney Robert W. Markette, Jr., CHC, for this 1-hour teleconference to review fraud and abuse pitfalls that plague just about every organization, including situations the OIG routinely mentions.

Topics covered:

  • Why providers can't market like everyone else -- and what they can do to run their businesses.
  • Do you pass the "one purpose test?" Why it gives the anti-kickback statute so much oooomph.
  • Marketing practices that are probably happening in your organization -- and how they could get you into trouble.
  • Top 5 issues regarding hospice-nursing home relationships, contracting, and per diem agreements.
  • Insider's guide to just what the feds are fishing for.
  • Have a questionable request from a business partner? Here's how to respond.
  • There is a way to build your business -- if you understand these safe harbor provisions.
  • The best ways to educate your employees, referral sources and beneficiaries on compliance.

Who should attend? Administrators, marketing staff, caregivers, compliance officers, and other health system personnel involved in Hospice business ventures.
