One of the most important compliance blueprints for hospices and other healthcare organizations every year, the OIG Work Plan lays out the audits, evaluations and other projects for the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) that the HHS Office of Inspector General plans to conduct in the year ahead. If you understand the OIG’s work plan, you will know where to focus your attention when it comes to fraud and investigative activities of the federal government, and you can nip problems in the bud and avoid expensive and time-consuming audits. The OIG has been very active in the hospice area in the past, so you want to make sure you understand all the activities planned in your field for 2018.
In this session, expert speaker Susan Balfour will provide you with a look at what to expect in hospice enforcement actions for 2018, based on the OIG Work Plan for 2018 and what we witnessed in 2017. This is key for planning your 2018 compliance activities.
After attending this session, you will be able to identify your hospice’s risk areas and take action to strengthen compliance in those areas. Susan will provide you with insights on how to plan agency-specific audits and monitoring and how to effectively deploy scare resources.
