Webinar Description

Does the Office of Inspector General (OIG) have a crystal ball? If you have ever looked at the 27 risk areas identified in their 1999 Compliance Guidance for Hospices, you certainly might think so. And, if you have never looked at them, it’s high time that you did. In this Webinar, faculty will highlight the top risk areas, discuss how to assess your hospice’s vulnerability for each and provide realistic strategies for risk reduction – three steps that form a critical piece of an effective compliance program.

Webinar Objectives

At the end of this Webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Describe and categorize the OIG hospice risk areas
  • Discuss the relevance of the risk areas to the current OIG Work Plan plus additional risk areas
  • Determine your hospice’s top risk areas
  • Identify risk reduction actions for your hospice
