In April 2013, the Office of the Inspector General of the United States Department of Health and Human Services issued new procedures, the SDP, or Self Disclosure Protocol, for facilities to self report various violations. Knowledge of these procedures supports your team's compliance goals. If there is a need for self-reporting it indicates that your team's compliances program is working.
The areas covered in the webinar include:
Why Should you Attend:
- Is disclosure required? HHS says that often there is a legal duty or ethical duty to report violations.
- The better question: Is there an advantage to self reported disclosure?
- Creates a presumption that a good, solid compliance program is in place.
- Can reduce monetary penalties
- Provides flexibility in the return of any overcharges
- Speeds up case resolution and management
- Avoids Corporate Integrity Agreements.
- What if I do not self report, will things go hard on my facility?
- Who may use the SDP
- What conduct or action falls under SDP
- What conduct does not fall under SDP
- What must be submitted if a facility self reports general violations
- Eleven elements required.
- What must be submitted in a case of false billing
- What must be submitted in a case involving an Excluded Person?
- Resolution of SDP matters.
Attend this 90-minute webinar to understand the framework of the revised SDP, learn the mechanics of filing an SDP, learn the risks of not self reporting and learn how the use of an SDP can help you enhance or better your compliance program.
