Recent cases and/or enforcement actions involving the Federal Civil False Claims Act (FCA) as well as the Medicare-Medicaid Anti-Kickback Statute (AKS) and/or Federal Physician Self Referral Law (Stark II) raise serious concerns regarding compliance issues with the hospital, physician practices, and other healthcare entities.
The Phase 2 HIPAA Compliance Audit, increasing breaches of unsecured protected health information and rampant medical identity theft reveal a national crisis in HIPAA compliance.
The Office for Civil Rights (OCR), the HIPAA enforcement arm of the U. S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), is ramping up enforcement. And a basic HIPAA requirement, Risk Analysis - Risk Management, is the key to protecting your business, whether you are a covered entity or a business associate.
The presentation will provide an overview of the Federal Stark and Anti-Kickback laws and corresponding regulations including the history and purpose of these laws. The presenter will provide the background upon which these laws were determined to be necessary and developed. The attendees will be provided with an overview and description of the laws, why they were instituted, what they do and do not cover and who they are and are not applicable to.
Today's diverse, fast-changing, multidisciplinary health care environment involves many health care professionals who work together for the common goal of the patient. This includes physicians, nurses, physical therapists, pharmacists, and others.
Today's diverse, fast-changing, multidisciplinary mental health care environment involves many mental health care professionals who work together for the common goal of the patient.
This includes physicians/psychiatrists, psychiatric nurses, psychologists and others. Nothing in health care is more fractured than in mental health among a multitude of mental health practitioners.
This lesson will explain new changes on Health and Human Services as it relates to enforcement of HIPAA for both covered entities and business associates as it relates to portable devices, texting and emailing of PHI.
There is a simple 3 step HIPAA "safe harbor" that frees Covered Entities and Business Associates from any responsibility or liability for unauthorized access to Protected Health Information (PHI) in unencrypted emails and text messages during transmission and after receipt by the patient.
The collection of laws and regulations known commonly as HIPAA is comprised of two federal statutes and three federal rules:
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 ("HIPAA"),the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act of 2009 ("HITECH"), the Privacy Rule (found at 45 C.F.R. 164.500 et. seq.), the Security Rule (found at 45 C.F.R. 164.300 et. seq.) and the Breach Notification Rule (found at 45 C.F.R. 164.400 et. seq.).
The Omnibus rules were enacted in 2013 to update the HIPAA law.
Many of the areas that were causing risk of patient information breaches were addressed, and new law written, in such a way as to increase enforceability, the size of fines and the ability to regulate covered entities.
These rules went into effect January 2013 and covered entities were given until September 2013 to become compliant.
These are being strongly enforced and the government has little sympathy for a covered entity who has not complied as they feel all physician offices were given nine months to come into compliance six years ago!
These rules mandate specific actions be taken by physician offices and if those actions have not been taken, especially relative to the distribution of patient privacy policies and the institution of business associate agreements, the fines and penalties can be extraordinary!
Why should you Attend: This webinar is a must for all practicing physicians!
This 90-minute webinar will be addressing how practice/business managers (or compliance offers) need to get their HIPAA house in order as HIPAA is now fully enforced and the government is not using kid gloves any more.
It will also address major changes under the Omnibus Rule, Trump administration, new congressional mandates and any other applicable updates for 2019 and beyond.
Incident-to coding for your non-physician practitioners (NPPs) services in conjunction with a supervising physician continues to generate confusion- and 2018 will be no exception.
So, it's no surprise that these claims generate higher than average denials, and lead to hefty penalties for physician practices ranging from $163K to $1.5 million - but they don't have to.
This webinar will be addressing the ins and outs of identifying what is and what is not PHI, proper ways to disclose this information, common sense security methods, what we can and can't do under HIPAA relating to disclosures, and how to properly investigate a breach (or a suspected breach). We will also be addressing how practice/business managers (or compliance offers) need to get their HIPAA house in order before the imminent audits occur.
