The OIG has stressed the importance of compliance programs for DME suppliers by issuing guidance on how the programs should be structured and implemented.  Congress has also weighed in through the Affordable Care Act, which makes compliance programs mandatory for DME suppliers at a date to be set in the future.  This program will discuss how an effective compliance program helps create financial success, customer loyalty, community support and employee satisfaction.  Topics covered will include primary compliance program objectives, the role of management in overcoming implementation obstacles, and identifying and addressing risk areas.  Topics will further include changing behaviors, balancing multiple roles, integration with other parts of the organization, education and training, and finding qualified staff.  The program will review the elements of an effective compliance program, and the need to regularly review and update the program.  Specific risk areas arising from marketing of DME will be discussed, as well as how to identify and address risk areas particular to DME suppliers. Register for Compliance Program:  Your Most Important “Profit Center” on Wednesday, November 15, 2017, 2:30-4:00 pm ET, with Jeffrey S. Baird, Esq., of Brown & Fortunato, P.C. and Wayne van Halem, of The van Halem Group.
