NACHC Corporate Compliance Training in Arizona

In addition to making significant changes to the health care system, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act grants new authority to enforcement agencies, increases potential financial penalties, and establishes new government audit programs.  Now, for the first time, compliance programs will also become mandatory conditions of enrollment in Medicare, Medicaid, and CHIP.

Undoubtedly, these changes create significant risks for health centers that lack an effective corporate compliance program to maintain compliance with the myriad legal, regulatory, and financial requirements.  This compliance training will equip your health center with key information on enforcement trends, equip your health center with tools and tips to implement your compliance program, and empower your health center to maintain compliance with applicable laws and regulations.

Compliance 101 will describe the evolution of corporate compliance programs and describe strategies for implementing effective compliance programs.  Compliance 201 will describe emerging enforcement trends, financial risk areas, clinical risk areas, and risk areas relevant to Section 330 requirements that are applicable to HRSA site visit reviews.

Learning Objectives:

At the end of this session, participants will be able to:

  • Understand the impact of health reform on fraud and abuse enforcement activities.
  • Describe effective strategies to implement the health center’s compliance program.
  • Identify health center financial, clinical and operational risk areas that should be prioritized in any compliance program.
