Step 7 of the 7 Mandated Steps
Dear Doctors and staff,
Our future is not merely something that happens to us, but something that we participate in creating. If we do this constantly, we can create an organized environment that works for both Chiropractors and Medicare.
I am finding the majority of Chiropractors have no idea, as of yet, their mandated responsibility of becoming Medicare compliant by the end of 2012. Some DC's have stuck their heads in the sand hoping it all will go away. However, about 10% to 20% of my fellow Chiropractors are collecting information and have made the move to become compliant. Those are the one's that will be in a strong Chiropractic business in 2014.
You first must know the correct way to do Chiropractic Medicare, then, you must know how to protect personal health information you have collected from your patients, and last, you must become compliant in Medicare.
Medicare Compliance Step # 7: Responding to Detected Offenses, Developing Corrective Action Initiatives, and Reporting to Government Authorities
Our guidebook has complete written guidelines in reference to responding to detected offenses, developing corrective action and reporting to government authorities. It has written policy about Internal Investigations with 30 categories already prepared for your office. It contains a Case File Report, Log of Non-Compliance form, Post-Audit Monitoring Report, Release Statement, Progressive Discipline Policy, Discipline Documentation Form, Human Resources Department, Guidelines for Interaction between Compliance Department and Internal Audit Department, Exit Interview Questionnaire, and How to Report Medicare Fraud. It's already completed for you and your staff.
Becoming compliant in Medicare can be fairly easy or so difficult many will not even try. That is up to you. We have put all the difficult stuff together for you. Now you must decide. Are you going to become compliant? (If not, you won't have much of a practice in 2013-2014.) Yes, you will attempt to become Compliant and must be ready by the end of this year.
