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:

      1. Identify survey deficiencies for 2018 and tools to evaluate your hospice’s compliance with the Conditions of Participation;
      2. List components and structure of an internal compliance audit, complete with topics and identified staff;
      3. Review components of organizational ethics related to compliance risk;
      4. Identify strategies for external auditors, including attorney-client privilege and how to prepare to respond;
      5. List risks for inducement for referrals and incentives for marketing.
