If your medical office bills Medicare Advantage Plans (Part C) – you probably have to attest every year to the Part C plan that you have a compliance program. A program that includes training, compliance point of contact, audits, policies and procedures, etc. (7 basic elements.)
I will walk you through the steps during the August 10th American Academy of Professional Coders (AAPC) webinar where we discuss what medical offices / professionals- must do to design a compliance program to be compliant. Compliance might be a new career for those that have a passion for compliance – we will discuss this as well.
