If you are a physician (primary care, dentist, dermatologist, ophthalmologist, radiologist, or someone who does not work for a hospital, such as an anesthesiologist), own a medical clinic or several small- to medium-sized clinics, and file claims under Medicare, Medicaid, and/or private insurance, you need a health care compliance plan implemented.
Because having a compliance program can protect you and your medical practice from administrative, civil, and/or criminal penalties imposed by federal and state governments.
Because when state and federal guidelines change — and they often do — you must make sure your health care compliance program follows them.
Most importantly, because you do not want to run afoul of the rules and regulations you must follow in order to legally receive Medicare/Medicaid reimbursements.
You’ve worked too hard to get your practice up and running. The last thing you want to do is to lose it for not knowing or following federal rules and regulations, and failing to engage in health care compliance reporting.
