Product Description

Hospice compliance plans should be more than a dusty binder on the back of your shelf.

The Medicaid Fraud and Abuse Task forces are cracking down on providers who receive federal funds. When the feds come knocking they've made it clear they'll be looking for your compliance plan. Is yours up to snuff? A good compliance plan is not just a set of policies and procedures that you put on your shelf and refer to when something bad happens. It should involve regular training because your employees need to know the policies and procedures.

Get a head start on your compliance plan -- and employee training -- right now by attending this 1-hour audioconference with healthcare attorney and topic expert Robert W. Markette. He'll not only cover the key elements every hospice facility's compliance plan should have, but he'll show you how to keep your plan current and effective.

Here’s a sampling of the details you’ll learn:

  • The 7 elements of compliance -- and how each is essential to your hospice facility's plan. 
  • Compliance officer facts: Who they should be, who they should report to and how much authority they should have. 
  • Does your compliance plan have sanctions for employees who violate it? See why this is key.
  • Routine functions your plan should have, including communication with staff, auditing and monitoring of risk areas.
  • The difference between auditing and monitoring -- and why this is significant.
  • Employee training tips that'll make your compliance plan a well-oiled machine.
  • What to do when responding to a complaint. Don't miss this key step.
  • So your compliance plan identified a problem. Now what? Use these strategies.
