About the time the profession starts to understand the critical nature of the HIPAA law (health care cybersecurity) and importance of getting a compliance program in place to avoid massive fines and to protect private health information, along comes the confusion created by:
- OIG compliance program requirements -- with special enforcement directly targeting chiropractic professionals who treat Medicare or other federally covered individuals.
- Separate Medicare/Federal Fraud Waste and Abuse laws that impact chiropractic professionals who do not treat Medicare part B, but do treat other individuals covered by federal funds, such as Medicaid.
- Bogus, official-looking scams, relative to OIG compliance audits.
- And the new (October 16, 2016) Affordable Care Act rule 1557, requiring translation services in 15 top languages be available in physician offices that treat Medicare part C (advantage and replacement plans)
This course was presented in March 2017 by Dr. Ty Talcott and sponsored by HIPAA Compliance Services.
