January 24, 2018 11:00am MT
Learn more about this event
Understanding the Office of Inspector General's (OIG) focus areas for its enforcement efforts will assist you with tailoring your compliance program efforts pertaining to education and internal auditing to ensure your practice does not become a post payment statistic. Additionally, it will assist with structuring internal audit programs so you can find, correct, and, where necessary, disclose errors in advance of any OIG or Integrity Contractor inquiry. You will learn the new, updated and ongoing target areas applicable to Medicare Part A and B that have been selected for elevated enforcement for 2018. New target areas will be specifically discussed and where appropriate, you will be provided with recommendations for assessing and reducing post-payment risk associated with OIG target areas.
Why is this topic important?
The OIG forewarns us with the areas of most significant concern. This allows compliance personnel, practice managers, auditors, coders, and physicians to focus their education, internal audits and compliance efforts so as to avoid liability.
