Lack of training or knowledge is not a valid defense and mistakes
can result in huge fines. Examples of cautionary areas: billing
for claims with no assignment of benefits on file, selling a
photocopier without wiping patient data stored in memory, or
listing employees as salaried to avoid paying overtime wages.
This baseline course explains compliance responsibilities and
liabilities in a medical office. Great training for new employees!
Participants receive specialized instruction and takeaways with details on the
7 elements of compliance that every practice must have in place, what to do
if an auditor contacts your office, and how to perform a practice gap analysis
and risk assessment. Preventing workplace hazards and creating a plan for
emergency/disaster preparedness will also be addressed.
This is a basic level class with instruction designed for participants with
some experience working in a medical office. A course manual will be
provided. Content is relevant for providers, billing professionals, office
managers, consultants, and anyone seeking a better understanding of
medical office compliance guidelines. Review numerous case examples and
receive guidance on compliant patient communication, reporting a breach,
and avoiding fraud and abuse.
