This webinar is brought to you by the Long Term Care, Senior Housing, In-Home Care, and Rehabilitation Practice Group.
Under Sections 6102 and 6401 of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), Medicare and Medicaid certified nursing homes are required to have in place a compliance and ethics program that is effective in preventing and detecting criminal, civil, and administrative violations and in promoting quality care. To date, however, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has yet to promulgate regulations governing the statutory requirement. With the deadline to have a plan in place by March 23, 2013, nursing home providers need to develop a basic plan now.
This webinar will:
Review the essential structure and elements of an effective nursing home corporate compliance program based on existing guidance and the provisions of the ACA;
Offer practical information to create a meaningful corporate compliance program; and
- Provide understanding regarding how CMS guidance necessary to implement the ACA’s compliance mandate is likely to impact providers.
