Compliance Tools for Beginners

February 6th, 2012

Failing to be "in compliance" is costing many providers' offices tens to hundreds of thousands of dollars.  Regardless of how you feel about the politics of the overhead burden on providers, the penalties are real.

There are some tools available to help you.  For example, visit CMS's archive of Quarterly Compliance Newsletters.  This will help you key in to the primary areas of concern.

Or visit, CMS's Compliance page.  It offers "Fast Facts" to help with compliance.

Overwhelmed with all the compliance material?  Just plain tired of reading? 

The OIG has made it a little easier for the TV/YouTube/IPad generations by addressing some of the more complicated compliance issues with podcasts.

The program began in December 2011 and the list of podcasts keeps growing. Some of our favorites include:  Compliance Program Basics, Tips for Implementing an Effective Compliance Program and Importance of Documentation.
