The industry's #1 source of timely news and proven strategies on Medicare compliance, Stark and other big-dollar issues of concern to health care compliance officers. Written weekly since 1992 by Nina Youngstrom — the field’s most knowledgeable, well-connected journalist — the award-winning newsletter identifies and provides valuable guidance on dozens of high-risk billing and documentation problems … and foreshadows the next moves of federal regulators and enforcers, and their armies of RAC, ZPIC and MAC auditors. “The best information there is for hospital compliance officers,” the 8-page newsletter includes weekly insights and strategies that are not available anywhere else.

Weekly News and Compliance Strategies on CMS/OIG Regulations, Enforcement Actions and Audits

Report on Medicare Compliance is a weekly 8-page newsletter written for busy compliance officers to provide timely news and valuable strategies that help run a more effective compliance operation, and limit a hospital's exposure to compliance risks. Providing practical tools such as checklists, sample forms and decision trees, each issue also is packed with insight from experts to help with these and other serious risk areas:

  • Medical necessity,
  • High-risk DRG coding,
  • RACs, MACs, ZPICs, and MICs,
  • Stark compliance,
  • Physician documentation,
  • And much more

Report on Medicare Compliance is a reliable source for timely guidance on:

  • Implementing effective strategies to use when dealing with Medicare auditors.
  • Coping with the “two-midnight” rule for admissions and improving the related documentation and case management.
  • Preparing for OIG Medicare compliance reviews, which audit multiple risk areas, examine internal controls and (in some cases) extrapolate enormous recoveries.
  • Ways to identify and manage new risks, such as 340B drug discounts and value-based purchasing reductions.
  • Strategies to limit Stark risks, which are spiking with more hospital employment of MDs.
  • Steps that can limit the chance of false claims when employees, competitors and physicians have knowledge of flaws in your organization.
  • Ways to make better use of PEPPER and other data in your compliance monitoring.
