The OIG has stressed the importance of compliance programs for health care providers by issuing guidance on how the programs should be structured and implemented. It is counter-productive for the rehab provider to provide quality patient services only to later have its reimbursement “clawed back” by Medicare or other third party payor on the basis of poor documentation, or have to respond to a government investigation because of violation of federal and state anti-fraud laws.

Join guest presenter, Jeff Baird to learn how an effective compliance program should be drafted and implemented. He will show how a compliance program can head off most fraud problems, create financial success, and foster employee loyalty. Topics covered will include primary compliance program objectives, the role of management in overcoming implementation obstacles, and identifying and addressing risk areas. Topics will further include changing behaviors, balancing multiple roles, integration with other parts of the organization, education and training, and finding qualified staff. The program will review the elements of an effective compliance program, and the need to regularly review and update the program.

Watch to learn:

  • What the OIG expects to be included in a compliance program.
  • Federal and state anti-fraud laws that need to be addressed by a compliance program.
  • Steps that management must take to ensure that employees are committed to compliance.
  • How the provider can conduct self-audits of its compliance obligations.
