Medicare audits have consistently provided context for denial of outpatient therapy services, particularly physical therapy, yet very few providers use published audit findings to assess practice risk. Therapy providers often lack knowledge of underlying fraud & abuse laws, and therefore may be at risk for violation without an understanding of compliance and mitigation strategies.
Whether your therapy services are provided in a private practice setting, an outpatient hospital department or a rehab agency, an effective compliance plan can mitigate potential adverse effects of program integrity reviews, including the reduction of potential civil monetary penalties.
Join healthcare compliance expert Nancy J Beckley, MS, MBA, CHC in this session to get insights on the compliance program mandates that are contained in the Affordable Care Act. Nancy will review the OIG Compliance Guidance and help you create a compliance plan in a consistent and well documented manner.
Plus, she will provide a model audit tool (Auditing and Monitoring Annual Calendar) as a handout along with compliance checklists recommended by the OIG.
