Both the OIG and the Department of Justice have reported record recoveries from civil cases involving contracts and arrangements that violate Stark Law, the Anti-Kickback Statute and the False Claims Act. Such cases have captured the attention of the compliance world and underscore the vulnerability of healthcare providers. With the uptick in settlement amounts and Corporate Integrity Agreements requiring substantial training on this topic, and the fact that training in this area has, until now, been unavailable, this course fills a very significant need. This multi-media course is designed to assist in understanding the basic components of contracts and arrangements, the various types of contracts and arrangements, the laws and other governing factors surrounding them, the risks involved and best practices for ensuring compliance in these areas. Due to the current regulatory environment, this course pays particular attention to contracts and arrangements involving physicians, but also addresses contracting with vendors.

[READ MORE]
The Emergency Medical Treatment and Labor Act (EMTALA) regulations, also known as the "patient anti-dumping law", define the obligations of Medicare participating hospitals when patients present in the Emergency Department or are seeking emergency medical care. EMTALA was originally enacted to prevent the transfer of patients with emergency medical conditions from one hospital to another for financial reasons, such as no insurance. Now the rules cover a wider variety of emergency room patient treatment issues. EMTALA enforcement at hospital facilities by the federal government has been increasing, resulting in many high profile and costly settlements. All affected personnel must be educated on their role and responsibility under the law to protect their facility from civil monetary penalties, lawsuits and potentially, exclusion from the federal Medicare program. The HCCS EMTALA Compliance online training course is designed to educate staff about when and where EMTALA applies, when EMTALA obligations end, what their responsibilities are, and what the violations are.

The federal government has established a series of rules designed to protect the rights of patients and ensure that their personal information stays private. Enforced by the Office of Civil Rights, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) establishes a series of procedures that must be followed in order to ensure patient privacy. In order to avoid major government fines, it’s critical for healthcare providers to maintain HIPAA compliance. HIPAA privacy training should be a critical part of your organization’s ongoing staff training. But many people only think that it’s important for the back office staff who handles paperwork and billing to fully understand HIPAA regulations. However, problems with HIPAA compliance can occur at any part of an organization. It’s essential for healthcare providers to make sure that doctors, nurses and all other staff are not just aware of HIPAA privacy compliance regulations but are expertly trained and able to fulfill all of the needed requirements. HCCS has created a comprehensive, multimedia HIPAA training course for every employee. This course provides training modules on HIPAA awareness as well as training modules that contain information employees need to know regarding Privacy, Security and Electronic Transaction. Our HIPAA online training is designed to engage your staff, making sure they pay attention and retain the information provided to them so they can use the proper practices in the real world.

Home care accounts for billions of dollars in Medicare and Medicaid expenditures. Like hospitals and nursing homes, home care providers must meet strict standards for documentation, the quality of services provided and the delivery of care. Meeting these standards results in a provider being accredited, a sign of quality that persons seeking home care should look for. Medicare and Medicaid have rules and regulations for billing these services. The consequences for failing to comply with regulations can be costly, potentially resulting in the loss of revenue and enforcement actions. The first step in maintaining compliance with regulations and reducing risk is to provide annual updated, expert compliance education to all staff members. This engaging, multimedia online course from HCCS will educate staff on the regulations and compliance issues specific to home health agencies (HHAs).
