Based on the Affordable Care Act of 2010 any physicians that treat Medicare or Medicaid beneficiaries will be required to have a compliance plan.  Many offices are non-compliant and either do not have a plan, or have a plan but are not following it.  The Office of the Inspector General (OIG) created an outline of a compliance plan for group practices that any practice can use as an outline to build a compliance plan.  While this is an outline, there currently are no requirements that this has to be followed, but it is the best practice since the OIG oversees compliance.  We will review the 7 effective components of a compliance plan released by the OIG, and discuss how to create your plan using this information.  After the completion of a plan, it must be followed and executed.  A plan not followed is worse than not having a plan at all.  The compliance plan is always adjustable as long as all who must follow it are aware of changes that are made, and it really can be set up to meet the needs of any practice.  The current basics of auditing will also be discussed.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the 7 components of a compliance plan
  • Realize what areas of your office should be included in the compliance plan
  • Build the compliance plan
  • Learn how to apply the plan, and follow the steps
  • Create compliance guidelines and goals that are obtainable
  • Know what training materials will work best
  • Confirm that the office understands the 2021 AMA E/M guidelines
