As an outpatient therapy department, do you have a formal compliance program? Does it meet the 7 Elements of an effective compliance program as defined by the Office of the Inspector General? Do you monitor and audit key elements of outpatient therapy compliance? Did you know that a Compliance Program is mandated by the Affordable Care Act for all healthcare providers?
If you answered no or I don’t know to any of these questions, this is a webinar you will want to attend. Join us as we discuss how to develop an effective compliance plan that will address the 7 elements of an effective compliance program. You will understand key items that you should monitor and audit to meet outpatient therapy regulatory compliance. You will leave with an action plan to create your program or fill voids that you may have.
At the completion of this webinar, the participant will be able to:
- Identify the 7 elements identified by the OIG of an effective compliance program.
- Articulate the requirements for compliance program written policies and procedures and processes.
- Articulate the requirements for an effective auditing and monitoring process.
- Identify key elements for outpatient therapy monitoring and auditing.
- Determine next steps in developing a compliance program that meets the requirements under the Affordable Care Act
