Did you know that the Federal Sentencing Guidelines (often used when assessing sanctions for violations of the False Claims Act or Anti-Kickback Statute) indicate that you should periodically evaluate the effectiveness of your organization’s compliance program? Additionally, the Office of the Inspector General’s (OIG) Compliance Program Guidance for Hospitals states that programs should be reviewed at least annually to ensure compliance elements are satisfied.
When is the last time you reviewed your compliance program? If the government were to come knocking, do you feel confident in proving you have an effective program?
ACT is available to assist with Compliance Effectiveness Reviews. Using guidelines from the OIG and the Health Care Compliance Association, we can efficiently and thoroughly evaluate your organization’s implementation of each of the compliance program elements and offer a path forward for any areas of opportunity we uncover.
