Corporate Compliance Manual CD-ROM
Since October of 2001, The Coalition has been hosting seminars on
various Corporate Compliance topics. These seminars have been
attended by hundreds of representatives of agencies from all over New
York City and beyond. However, we know there were agencies who were
unable to attend. This manual--while extremely valuable as a
supplement to attendance of the series--is invaluable to agencies that
have not attended the seminars.
Why do you need the Compliance manual?
The essence of Corporate Compliance is the effective
implementation of policies and procedures that ensure ethical
operations that meet all necessary laws, rules, and regulations
set forth by governing bodies, particularly meeting standards
created by the 1996 Health Insurance Portability and
Accountability Act (HIPAA) and the administrators and enforcers
of them. These standards were created to eliminate fraud,
waste, abuse and inefficiency in the health care system.
The results of recent studies undergone to assess agency
claims have found that vast percentages of claims to Medicare,
Medicaid and other third party billers would not have passed
the scrutiny of investigators. Also there were large
percentages of improper billings resulting in investigations by
Compliance Plans have been recognized as one of the primary
ways to avoid getting into these situations. An effective
Compliance Plan can mitigate any sanctions that may otherwise
be applied to organizations that commit crimes or civil
misdeeds however unknowingly.
Compliance plans must begin at the top of the
organizational structure with the Board of Directors and
continue down through program and administrative staff.
This Compliance manual developed by Black Point Associates
in cooperation with The Coalition of Behavioral Health
Agencies, Inc. (2002) provides a detailed and comprehensive
step-by-step guide through the development and implementation
of an effective Compliance Plan including sample compliance
plans, codes of conduct, resolutions, assessment tools,
Compliance Personnel Responsibilities, evaluation forms, and a
variety of other resources intended to educate and assist the
organization in understanding and addressing Compliance issues
including OIG Compliance Guidelines, and DHHS documents.
Attached is the Table of Contents of the Compliance Manual
for your perusal so you can see how invaluable it would be to
you and your agency.
