Has your organization considered an anesthesia compliance plan to meet the requirements of the Office of Inspector General (OIG)? Have you recently updated your policies and procedures? Have you trained your staff on the latest federal regulations that might affect your billing for anesthesia? We have a solution for your anesthesia company.
Having a compliance plan is important for many reasons but the most important is that it is mandated by the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and recommended by the Office of Inspector General (OIG). In addition, the United States Sentencing Guidelines lists a compliance plan as one of the factors that should be considered by the Department of Justice (DOJ) during an investigation or determination of prosecution, resolution or form of penalty. A well-designed plan is the best way of preventing billing errors and potential claims of fraud, waste or abuse. It can also help you in the case of a review or audit by a federal or state program and prevent or lessen legal expenses, fines or penalties.
