Product Description

The expert reveals how to make the OIG Work Plan do your work for you.

Work plans from the HHS Office of Inspector General are a vital tool for designing, coding and reimbursement processes that keep your health care organization compliant and profitable. A thorough understanding of the OIG’s priorities not only clues you in to hot spots for Medicare and Medicaid -- it also gives you insight into what private payers will be watching for.

But slogging through the OIG’s Work Plans is no walk in the park. The FY 2008 plan is 111 pages of government mumbo jumbo. Plus, to use the work plans effectively, you must understand trends over the last 5 years. That’s hundreds of pages of reading -- and lots of analysis. So let Duane C. Abbey, PhD, CFP, help translate that into plain English and into best practices for your facility.

In part 2 of this 2-part series, you’ll get the inside scoop on:

  • Trends over the last 5 years and what you should do NOW to stay out of the OIG’s crosshairs.
  • Payment system interfaces: Are yours up to par -- and measuring up to the OIG’s standards?
  • How to recognize critical compliance snafus that you must address right away.
  • Learn how to identify and review important reports from the OIG -- and know when they apply to you.
  • Are you on your self-auditing game? What you need to have in line long before the OIG comes knocking.
  • Tailoring your healthcare compliance plans: Integrate current issues with ease.
  • Anything else you’ve always wanted to know about the Work Plan but were afraid to ask? Don’t be shy -- Dr. Abbey will be glad to help you in an interactive Q&A!

Who should attend: Chargemaster coordinators, billing and claims generation personnel, compliance personnel, healthcare auditors, patient financial management personnel, cost accounting personnel, cost report personnel, financial analysts, managed care contract personnel, revenue enhancement personnel, chief financial officers, chief compliance officers, financial planners, and all other hospital personnel interested in compliance issues.
