Medical Office Compliance

This baseline course will explain responsibilities and liabilities in a medical office. Review numerous case examples and receive guidance on compliant patient communication, reporting a breach and more. Mistakes can result in huge fines. Examples of cautionary areas: billing for claims with no assignment of benefits on file, selling a photocopier without wiping patient data stored in memory, or listing employees as salaried to avoid paying overtime wages.

Course Highlights:

  • Learn the 7 elements of compliance that every practice must have in place
  • ADA rules and how to apply them in your practice

  • Appropriate clinical documentation for compliance with payer and regulatory guidelines
  • Compliance efforts that could reduce or minimize the adverse effects of fraud investigations
