Navigating Healthcare Compliance for 2024: Key Authorities, Audit Pathways, and OIG Work Plan Insights

Healthcare is a multi-trillion-dollar industry that remains highly regulated. When organizations bill for services, they are reimbursed on a good-faith basis with the expectation that clinical documentation supports the services reported and regulatory compliance has been met.  

Each year the OIG releases their respective work plan which highlights areas and services that represent high priority audit targets during the upcoming fiscal year and release monthly updates to the work plan. It is imperative for organizations to stay diligent and apprised of these compliance initiatives and be especially proactive in their compliance efforts, conduct regular audits of processes and clinical documentation, and comply with the mandatory self-reporting requirements set forth by the Affordable Care Act. In this webinar, our expert speaker will discuss the key governing authorities involved in healthcare compliance in 2024, pathways involved in audits and investigations, review the OIG work plan with most recent updates, spotlight current audit trends and audit targets in 2024, identify relevant action protocols, discuss examples of the latest OIG advisory opinions, identify elements of an effective compliance plan based on recent updates, and discuss actionable best practice tips to set you up for success in 2024 and beyond.
