OIG Alert: Identify The Red Flags Of Relationship Between Hospices And Nursing Homes  

Hospices and nursing homes have a long history of working together.  Many hospices provide care to nursing home residents and contract with nursing homes to provide certain in-patient services.  Due to the potential for referrals, OIG has many concerns about these relationships. OIGs concerns have been increasing and have moved from scrutinizing contractual relationships to scrutinizing the care provided to residents of facilities.

Providers need to be aware of the risks related to long term hospice patients in facilities, and the risks from contracting with facilities and other potential compliance violations.

In this 60 minutes hospice training conference, expert speaker Robert Markette will review a number of OIG alerts, bulletins and guidance documents to identify red flags for these relationships. He will identify strategies for declining inappropriate requests in a manner designed to maintain the relationship. Along with that, he’ll also evaluate the compliance strategies including, education, designed to prepare your staff to identify problems.

Plus, Robert will shed light on the risks related to marketer compensation and marketing materials, the latter being specifically identified by OIG as a risk in a recent alert.

Take a look at the topics covered:

  • Why OIG's opinion on hospice is changing.
  • How the expansion of the hospice benefit is leading to increased enforcement.
  • What do your marketing materials need to say to be compliant?
  • What are the key risk areas for contracts with referral sources?
  • How your marketing staff is a key component of avoiding non-compliance.

Who should attend? Compliance officers, administrators, DON, marketing staff, management
