Mark Your Calendars: HDJN Hosting Two-Part Webinar Series

Hancock, Daniel, Johnson & Nagle, P.C. is hosting a two-part webinar series to help providers with development and implementation of an effective compliance program.  Part I is scheduled for December 18 at 2:00 PM.  Part II is scheduled for January 16 at 2:00 PM.

On March 23, 2013, all nursing facilities who participate in Medicare or Medicaid are required to have an effective compliance program in place.  A notebook of policies sitting on a shelf isn’t going to cut it.  The compliance program must be a living, breathing part of the organization.  The compliance program must be embedded in the organizations culture and tangibly demonstrated throughout the facility’s day-to-day operations.  Not only will the government be examining compliance programs as a condition of participation in the Medicare and Medicaid programs, but a robust compliance program will help reduce the amount of governmental scrutiny facilities will face with the government’s increasing enforcement initiatives and reimbursement audits.
