Health Center Corporate Compliance Training
TO REGISTER, CLICK HERE.
The Maine Primary Care Association is hosting FTLF for a 1.5 day Corporate Compliance Training in August. This event is open to all and is not limited to MPCA members or Maine health centers.
Health centers face many types of compliance risks: some are unique to health centers (e.g., compliance with Section 330 of the Public Health Service Act and its implementing regulations), while others affect federal grantees and the health care industry more broadly (e.g., the submission of false claims to Medicare, Medicaid and other third-party payors). Given today’s heightened enforcement environment, it is important for health centers to understand their compliance risks and develop a corporate compliance program that helps to mitigate those risks.
Designed to assist health centers in implementing an effective corporate compliance program that focuses on their highest risk areas, this training will address:
- Government standards for compliance programs;
- Strategies to create accountability for compliance throughout the health center – from the Board of Directors, to senior leaders and frontline staff; and,
- Key risk areas for health centers.
Who Should Attend?
All are welcome, but we think health center staff in the following roles will find it particularly helpful:
- CEOs, Executive Directors, and Administrators
- Compliance Officers
- COO & CFO Affinity Groups
- Health Center Board of Directors members
What is the Cost?
- MPCA Members: $695
- Non-Members: $725
