Services, Office of Inspector General and the U.S. Department of Justice to mitigate fraudulent activity and eliminate harm to hospice patients.
This course covers several important topics related to hospice compliance, including Fraud, Waste and Abuse, Medicare Conditions of Participation, Documentation and Coding, and Billing and Reimbursement issues.
