Description: Medical practices are inundated with laws, rules and regulations with which they must comply. The enforcement arm for the Federal Government for many of these programs is the Office of the Inspector General. This is particularly true for Medicare fraud and abuse issues. The OIG recommends that all medical practices have a compliance plan detail how the practice expects employees to adhere to its policies relating to the rules, laws and regulations. Having and living by a compliance plan will help mitigate penalties if a practice is found to be in violation. The presentation discuss the need for compliance plans and details the key elements that need to be present in a plan.
