As a part of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010, there is a mandatory requirement for skilled nursing facilities to establish a compliance and ethics program as a condition of participation in the Medicare and Medicaid programs. The deadline for the program to be in place is March 2013. Senior care administrators will need to be a driving force to get these programs developed, implemented and monitored. The teleconference will give them an overview and a plan of action to develop the program and get all the requirements into place.
After participating in this webinars, attendees will know:
- The purposes of the mandatory compliance programs for skilled nursing facilities
- The seven (7) fundamental elements of an effective compliance program
- The steps to take in order to implement the compliance program by the CMS deadline of March 23, 2013
