Medical Office Compliance
Every office that submits claims to a third-party payer must be compliant. Lack of training and knowledge is not a valid defense in a federal audit. Don’t get caught off guard! Even honest mistakes can result in huge fines. This training will help providers, compliance professionals, practice managers, billing supervisors, consultants, and anyone seeking a better understanding of medical office compliance guidelines. Review the 3 major compliance risk areas: Medicare, HIPAA, OSHA, and the OIG Workplan updates. This is a basic-level class that includes digital course materials with sample compliance checklists, gap analysis site survey, and HIPAA-compliant forms.
Gain the knowledge and tools needed to assess risk areas within the practice and face an audit or investigation with confidence. Learn your compliance liabilities and responsibilities, the 7 elements of compliance that every practice must have in place, and explain measures you can take to minimize the adverse effects of fraud investigations. Implement policies and procedures that protect providers and the practice from undue risks and penalties associated with non-compliance.
