Seminar: Contracting with Physicians While Complying with DHCS' IMS Guidelines: Avoid Costly Mistakes!

Incidental medical services at residential treatment facilities must be provided by one or more physicians and surgeons licensed by the Medical Board of California or the Osteopathic Medical Board or by licensed health care practitioners acting within the scope of practice of their licensure and under the direction of a physician and surgeon. The healthcare practitioners providing IMS must be knowledgeable about addiction medicine.

Residential treatment facilities who engage healthcare practitioners to provide IMS need to have a comprehensive understanding of the law that permits IMS as well as DCHS’ recent guidelines and upcoming regulations. Mistakes in this area – such as contracting with physicians to provide broader primary care or psychiatric care to their clients at your facility – can put your license (and the physician’s license) at risk and can potentially result in violations of California’s corporate practice of medicine law (CPOM), which generally prohibits licensed health professionals from working for business entities other than professional corporations or for unlicensed people.

Seminar: Getting Paid and Staying Out of Trouble - Building an Effective Risk Management Program

In the addiction treatment industry, we too often disregard matters of regulatory compliance and risk management until it’s too late. This can result in legal liability – including fines and penalties – as well as costly payor disputes, which impact your financial viability. When we deal with these issues, it’s often while on the defensive and solely on a “reactive” basis. Ultimately this approach to compliance and risk will cost you time and money.

In this seminar, we’ll teach you how to take a more “proactive” approach to these threats to your business and ability to deliver care. We’ll show you a step-by-step process to implement and maintain a robust compliance and risk management program for your organization in a way that’s efficient and cost-effective.

Webinar: The Value of HIPAA Compliance

The value of being compliant extends beyond the confidence that you can pass a HIPAA audit. And often, what is and is not required for total HIPAA compliance is the source of misconceptions and misunderstandings that have no doubt contributed to the resurgence in fines and litigation of OCR’s Phase 2 audits. Please join us for this very important webinar. It could be the most important time spent for your business in 2018!

Seminar: Risk Reality and Preventative Solutions In The Commercial Payer Landscape

The only Risky Business we like is that movie with Tom Cruise ... and to be fair, we don’t like it that much anymore -- it hasn’t aged well.

But there is one thing in our space that never gets old: a provider billing an insurance company runs the risk of an audit.

No one likes an audit, but comprehensive reviews are a reality in the addiction treatment and recovery industry. With heightened attention toward billing practices, providers need to be proactive in preventing and eliminating accusations of fraud or abuse.
