Hospice Compliance Certificate Program

Successful programs today need to know the basics of healthcare compliance, including developing a compliance program, compliance risk assessment, compliance policies and procedures, and anonymous reporting.  The importance of the Stark law, the Yates memo, anti-kickback statutes, and inducements for referrals and incentives for marketing will also be covered.   It is critical to also look at hospice-specific topics to apply back home, including a detailed review of the federal hospice regulations including Conditions of Payment, conducting an internal audit, looking at organizational ethics related to compliance, and audit scrutiny. 

The Hospice Compliance Certificate Program is a two-day course offered in conjunction with NHPCO’s in-person conferences; see specific conference information at www.nhpco.org/conferences for more information.

The Hospice Compliance Certificate Program is not a certification program. Attendance both full days and successfully passing a test based upon the content is required in order for participants to receive a certificate.
