Program Materials

This CLE webinar will prepare healthcare counsel to improve compliance in areas targeted by the Office of Inspector General (OIG) in its FY 2013 Work Plan, including hospital billing for inpatient stays, coding compliance, durable medical equipment and more.

Description

The OIG issues a Work Plan each fiscal year outlining its areas of focus for the year. The Work Plan for Fiscal Year 2013, issued in early October, mostly addresses the continued implementation of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, but it also introduces a number of new initiatives.

The major OIG initiatives include ensuring that hospitals comply with Medicare requirements for inpatient billing; reviewing hospital coding to determine if claims were appropriately processed and paid; and continuing to identify fraud and abuse risks in electronic health records systems, among others.

Listen as our authoritative panel of healthcare attorneys examines the OIG's priority activities for FY 2013. The panel will explain best practices for hospitals, providers, medical equipment suppliers, and their counsel to increase the likelihood that current compliance practices will survive heightened federal scrutiny.
