Hospice Fraud & Audit Investigations: How to Prevent, Detect & Defend Against Them

The hospice industry’s recent growth has led to increased Medicare reimbursements, drawing recent CMS scrutiny. Concerns about fraud and abuse, and potential for audits and extrapolation leading to significant take-backs, have caught many hospice providers off-guard. False Claims Act litigation threats are motivating hospice providers to operate differently, educate staff, and be prepared to respond to ADR requests, recoupment demands, and more. This webinar will address legal and regulatory challenges, OIG target areas, fraud investigations, common audit issues, and strategies to identify and remedy noncompliance.

 

Highlights

  • Why hospice scrutiny is rising and likely to increase
  • How certain operational practices and relationships can draw extra attention
  • Importance of a corporate compliance program
  • Training areas that warrant ongoing education
  • Importance of physician signatures
  • Need for a clearly defined ADR response process
  • When to retain counsel

 

Take-Away Tool Kit

  • Sample ADR response policy

 

Who Should Attend

This informative session is designed for administrators, medical directors, compliance officers, nurses, billing staff, owners, and management.

 

Presenter

Robert W. Markette, Jr. CHC, Hall, Render, Killian, Heath & Lyman, P.C.
Robert focuses his legal practice on representing home health, hospice, and private-duty providers. With over a decade’s experience, he works on issues related to Medicare and Medicaid compliance including surveys, responding to surveys, state and federal appeals of survey findings; payer issues, including appealing payer audit findings; HIPAA compliance; Medicare and Medicaid fraud and abuse, including developing and implementing compliance programs, performing internal investigations and representing providers in external investigations and civil and criminal matters. Robert further assists clients with purchasing and selling home health, hospice, and private-duty agencies. Because these providers depend heavily on their staff, Robert also addresses legal issues related to employment matters. A frequent speaker, Robert graduated from Hanover College with a degree in Computer Science and received his law degree from Indiana University School of Law. Robert is certified in health care compliance by the Health Care Compliance Board and is admitted to practice in Indiana and Oklahoma.
