2017 was a significant year for health care compliance. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office of Inspector General (OIG) decided to provide more frequent updates, rather than just a yearly Work Plan. HIM professionals now receive updates monthly, sometimes even more frequently. Providers need to be kept informed of new CPT and HCPCS codes to stay up-to-date with guidelines, as well as maintain a healthy bottom line. Forensic coding can assist providers and health information managers with problem areas, and – most importantly – can improve revenue!
The OIG released a tool to assist all entities to understand the new buzz word “effective.” Is this term used enough in your organization? The term “usual, customary and reasonable (UCR)” is becoming a daily word for many attorneys. What is UCR and how is it defined? The presenter will look at a couple of 2017 health care fraud cases and discuss what went wrong.
Attendees will also review and receive answers to timely inquiries:
- 2017-2018 compliance updates – what changed?
- OIG Work Plan moves to monthly updates – why?
- The moving target of UCR – what is fair?
- Top fraud cases of 2017 – what went wrong?
- Why Comply? Who is at risk?
- Goal setting for HIM and Compliance – a Winning Combination!
