Product Description

Strengthen Your Compliance & Protect Your Medical Practice from Settlements & Enforcement

There has been a noticeable uptick in settlements and enforcement against individual physicians, ever since the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) issued the Yates’ Memo for stronger enforcement against individuals. As a physician, you cannot afford to ignore the compliance risk you may face – because the settlements and enforcement against your practice can be very costly.

Join this session, where healthcare reimbursement and compliance expert C. J. Wolf, MD, M.Ed. will discuss in detail these recent enforcement actions – and show you how to prevent them by strengthening your organization’s compliance program. You will learn how to assess your compliance program’s effectiveness, access resources to check your practice’s billing compliance, and which tools to use to identify questionable financial relationships.

You will also learn about the current environment of compliance risk your medical practice is exposed to – especially over the last two years – due to the DOJ’s increased focus on individual physician accountability.

After attending the webinar, you will be armed with the tools, knowledge and methods to prevent settlements and enforcement against your practice.
