• Corporate Compliance and Ethics Program Requirement

    Thursday May 30, 2013

    The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) required all Medicare/Medicaid Skilled Nursing Facilities to have an effective Compliance and Ethics Program in place by March 23, 2013.

     

    The primary purpose of the Compliance and Ethics Program is to prevent, detect, and correct any fraud, abuse, or waste, to promote quality of care, and to have an operational Compliance and Ethics Program in place to meet applicable federal, state, and local laws and regulations. In order to avoid potential exposure nursing facility providers should take steps to implement the required Compliance and Ethics Program.

     

    Robinson Adams - Arthur J. Gallagher has partnered with Associated Long Term Care Insurance Company, Johnston Barton Proctor & Rose and Care2Learn to assist you with the development of your Compliance and Ethics Program and training along with answering any questions you may have concerning this program.
