Why does a Healthcare Practice Need a Compliance Program?

Compliance plans have been in the forefront of healthcare news publications for some time. A proactive approach to compliance will help the Practice uncover inefficiencies, and possibly items or procedures that could be considered fraud and abuse by the government. It is a good business policy that indicates good faith effort to comply with all applicable laws and regulations.

 

Having a program is a condition of enrollment with Medicare. NYS OMIG requires providers who meet specific standards to implement and certify annually that they have a program.

Developing a Compliance Program

There are 7 basic elements to the Compliance Program:

  • Written Standards of Conduct which includes policies of non- intimidation and non- retaliation

  • Designation of a Compliance Committee and/or Compliance Officer

  • Training and Education

  • Effective Lines of Communication

  • Disciplinary Procedures

  • Auditing and Monitoring

  • Investigations and Corrective Actions

 

Each healthcare Practice is unique, so each Compliance Program must also be unique. All Compliance Programs should be built upon the foundation of the seven basic components as listed in the Federal Sentencing Guidelines. However, the size and nature of the Practice will determine what and how each issue is to be addressed.

 

Because of the changing nature of healthcare regulation, the Compliance Program will be a “work in progress”. The program should be monitored and updated at least annually, and more frequently if necessary to provide for an up-to-date compliance program.

Today’s healthcare environment is more complex than ever. There are a multitude of regulations and guidelines that providers are expected to know and follow. It is hard enough to keep up with the day to day operations, patient care and keeping the practice financially viable. Let us help get you on the right track so that you can navigate and avoid the perils that can sneak up and bite you when you least expect it. 

Providers  need to be proactive now more than ever. Developing a culture of compliance starts at the top. It is the only way an organization or practice can ever hope to develop an effective and ethical program. We can teach compliance, but we cannot teach you ethics. Everyone in the practice or organization is responsible for compliance, and should understand that it is a condition of employment.
