This lab compliance training will provide an easy to follow outline for developing and updating the required HHS Laboratory Compliance Plan for any provider who bills Medicare or Medicaid for services.
Why Should You Attend:
With the enactment of PPACA in 2010, Compliance Plans are now mandatory for all providers who bill Medicare and Medicaid for their services. Each provider covered by PPACA, must develop and implement a Compliance Program “appropriate to its characteristics”. This legislation is being enforced by the Office of Inspector General, OIG, within Health and Human Services, or HHS, Department.
This session provides an easy to follow outline for developing and updating the required HHS Laboratory Compliance Plan. Since the OIG has a zero tolerance policy for fraud and abuse, it is imperative that Laboratory Management and Administrators responsible for the Laboratory are knowledgeable about, and actively working toward maintaining compliance with the elements of the OIG Lab Model.
We will discuss required documents, staff training, audits, and helpful websites, to provide examples that each attendee may use to fulfill and update their Compliance Plan. In addition, we will identify future changes to regulations, and provide suggestions on ways to stay in compliance.
