Hospice Compliance Conference Program
NHPCO Presenting in the Northeast in Collaboration with HPCANY
December 12-13, 2019*
Renaissance Albany Hotel
Successful programs today need to know the basics of healthcare compliance, including developing a compliance program, compliance risk assessment, compliance policies and procedures, and anonymous reporting. The importance of the Stark law, the Yates memo, anti-kickback statutes, and inducements for referrals and incentives for marketing will also be covered. It is critical to also look at hospice-specific topics to apply back home, including a detailed review of the federal hospice regulations including Conditions of Payment, conducting an internal audit, looking at organizational ethics related to compliance, and audit scrutiny. The two-day course promises to be just what those interested in hospice compliance are looking for – hospice specific compliance content, up to the minute compliance updates, and tools you can use as soon as you get back home.
By the end of the session, participants will:
- Identify survey deficiencies for 2018 and tools to evaluate your hospice’s compliance with the Conditions of Participation.
- List components and structure of an internal compliance audit, complete with topics and identified staff.
- Review components of organizational ethics related to compliance risk.
- Identify strategies for external auditors, including attorney-client privilege and how to prepare to respond.
- List risks for inducement for referrals and incentives for marketing.
