Agenda

 

basics

COMPLIANCE PROGRAM BASICS – The Kitch compliance attorneys have years of experience with helping clients nationwide to develop and implement effective compliance programs and acting as compliance counsel. The Kitch compliance attorneys will lay the compliance program groundwork for attendees to build on for the rest of the day. In the event CMS issues its final rules on compliance programs, these developments will, of course, be incorporated into this program.

 

moderatedMODERATED PANEL DISCUSSION ON FALSE CLAIMS/QUI TAM LAWSUITS – This panel will include individuals with experience in each side of a False Claim/Qui Tam lawsuit to share their experience and insight into the origins, development, and disposition of these claims.

 

qualityQUALITY-OF-CARE COMPLIANCE – The OIG has identified numerous quality-of-care risk areas in its compliance guidance for skilled nursing facilities. The seminar will feature speakers who have performed countless compliance assessments and audits on quality of care issues who will guide attendees in determining where to focus their compliance efforts with quality of care issues and how to be the most effective with those efforts.

 

billingBILLING COMPLIANCE – A False Claim involves “billing” for services inappropriately, and yet “Billing Compliance” gets surprisingly little attention in many compliance programs. This seminar will include speakers that will focus on billing compliance concerns and provide attendees with recommendations for policies, procedures and audits that will improve the effectiveness of their compliance programs.

 

employeeEMPLOYEE/EMPLOYMENT COMPLIANCE – Most Qui Tam lawsuits stem from disgruntled current or former employees. The Kitch Employment group specializes in long term care and will share its expertise in managing employee concerns to try to avoid Qui Tam/whistleblower lawsuits, as well as provide recommendations for developing policies and procedures to maintain compliance with employment laws and demonstrate an effective compliance program.

 

immigrationIMMIGRATION LAW COMPLIANCE – Corporate Compliance programs should cover compliance with all laws and regulations. With the shortages in the health care workforce, many providers are trying to attract employees from other countries. This means immigration issues are becoming a risk area for long term care. The Kitch Immigration team will share its proficiency to help attendees navigate this emerging risk area.
