With the passage of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010, as amended by the Health Care Education Reconciliation Act of 2010 (the Healthcare Reform Law), Congress for the first time has mandated that a broad range of providers, suppliers, and physicians adopt a compliance and ethics program. The Office of Inspector General (OIG) has stated a mandatory compliance plan will go into effect by 2013.
A failure to implement certain core compliance program features will create additional opportunities for regulatory and law enforcement scrutiny, as well as potential False Claims Act liability for failure to prevent or identify improper federal healthcare program claims and payments.
Are you in compliance? Do you have the tools to satisfy the myriad of regulations associated with healthcare reporting and reimbursement?
MPM has always been at the forefront in regards to compliance and continues to keep our physician partners aprised of regulations and how they can impact their practice.
