Federal health care enforcers expect all providers to implement effective compliance programs and to include in those programs specific policies, procedures and other mechanisms to prevent and detect illegal activity.
In response to this requirement, MMA has developed a comprehensive Compliance Program, which includes the following elements:
Effective Compliance Plan
This Compliance Program provides you with internal controls and procedures that promote adherence to statutes and regulations applicable to Federal health care programs and private insurance program requirements. It also has a well-defined self-monitoring and self-reporting policy. Using this program not only assists you in preventing and detecting fraudulent activity, it also acts as a legal shield to significantly reduce the penalties if wrongdoing occurs or if mistakes are made.
